Pastors Mac and Lynne Hammond
Mac and Lynne Hammond are senior pastors of Living Word, a large and growing body of Christian believers in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota. Mac is the author of several internationally distributed books. He is broadly acclaimed for his ability to apply the principles of the Bible to practical situations and the challenges of daily living.
While helping her husband pastor Living Word, Lynne Hammond travels internationally as a teacher and author on the subject of prayer. The desire of Lynne’s heart is to impart principles of corporate and Spirit-led prayer to the Church throughout the world. Under her leadership, the prayer ministry at Living Word has become an internationally recognized model for developing effective pray-ers in the local church.
After nearly 40 years, Living Word’s church attendance has grown from twelve people in 1980 to an active church body of more than 10,000 members. Today Living Word sends the hope of the Gospel across the country and around the world through numerous outreaches and brings practical help and the message of God’s grace and love to an ever-growing number of people!
