More About Lynn Bell Pechuekonis


After 17 years in Charlottesville, Virginia, Lynn (formerly Lynn Bell) recently moved over to Harpers Ferry, W.Va., with her new husband Christian Pechuekonis (pronounced “Petch-uh-konis”). They followed the siren call of a 1920’s stone foursquare home in a beautiful historic community, and as they set up housekeeping they are watching for how God will use them in this next stage of their journey.

Now a freelance copywriter and editor, Lynn spent the past nearly two decades working in communications for the University of Virginia. She is the mother of two twenty-something daughters and has been a volunteer Bible teacher in every church she’s ever been a member of over the past 35 years.

She and Christian are currently looking for a new church where they can worship and serve. In Charlottesville, Lynn last attended All Souls Church, where her most recent class was called “A Woman’s Place in the Ministry of Jesus.”

She first became interested in the topic of Jesus and women during the 15 years when she lived out West. Eventually, she published a 10-week Bible study for women, called The Gentle Savior: Seeing Jesus through the Eyes of the Women Who Met Him (available on Amazon).

Lynn says that her ongoing study of the interactions of Jesus with women has given her complete confidence about God’s love for her. More importantly, it has transformed her relationships with other women, both in and out of the church. Her sisters in Christ were incredibly supportive when her 31-year marriage ended several years ago, and they have celebrated vigorously with her over the past year as she developed a relationship with the kind and generous man who is now her husband.

Lynn just completed two one-year terms as board chair of Love in the Name of Christ in Charlottesville, a non-profit mobilizing churches to serve needy people. She has volunteered for her local shelter for women experiencing domestic partner violence and has traveled to Ensenada, Mexico, four times to build homes for needy families.

She enjoys everything Jane Austen, painting vintage furniture, learning new ways to make vegetables taste delicious, and spending time on her new front porch surveying the lush flower garden left by the previous owners of her home.

The Gentle Savior: Seeing Jesus through the Eyes of the Women Who Met Him

Lynn Bell spoke for a women’s retreat I recently attended. I had never met Lynn and did not know what to expect. I was excited to see what she and the Lord were about to share with me. I was not in the least disappointed. I found Lynn to be very knowledgeable, warm and compassionate. She is a gifted teacher. I have been reading and studying God’s Word for most of my life but had not really explored the ideas Lynn presented regarding Jesus’ relationships with the women he came in contact with. Her lessons were informative and applicable to what we as women deal with in today’s society. The questions Lynn provided for our group discussions were challenging and thoughtful. She inspired me to further explore how Jesus views women. Lynn was a true blessing and I am thankful to have been a part of the “Sisters in Christ” weekend.

Lynn's knowledge and presentation of the encounters that Jesus had with women was powerful. It has changed how I view myself under the umbrella of grace and how I view other women. Her presentation was thought-provoking and engaging. The ladies at the retreat really enjoyed the time to break out into groups and answer the questions that Lynn provided. The personal devotional she created helped participants dig even deeper. It was a great weekend of being "Sisters in Christ and Sisters of Christ." We are so thankful that Lynn was able to share with us. It was truly a blessing.

Lynn Bell is one of the core members of Maple Grove Christian Church. She has an incredible passion for the Lord and His people, especially young people and women who have been through crisis. I had the opportunity to go on a mission to Mexico during the summer, and I saw Lynn's servant heart in action. Lynn has a genuine and gentle spirit and a warm and inviting presence about her. During the mission to Mexico Lynn led our team's nightly devotions and did a awesome job helping us to keep Christ at the center of our efforts.

Alina Rich, Retreat Coordinator, Women's Ministry Team

"We were so delighted to have Lynn speak at our Women’s Retreat! From the start she was wonderful to work with as she developed handouts for us, listened to our specific needs and made every effort to bring God’s truth to our ladies. Lynn was organized and prepared with prewritten notes and power point slides that added a multimedia dimension to her talk. She presented questions and allowed time for discussion that provided a very dynamic element to the presentations. Above all of these visual and interactive parts of her talk, Lynn very simply and honestly presented Biblical truth to a hungry audience. She laid out example after example of God’s love for women shown through Jesus’s interactions with them. She challenged all of us to look at how we treat and interact with other women and to honestly ask ourselves if we see, love and accept our sisters as Jesus does."

Lynn Bell was a recent speaker at our women’s retreat. I appreciated the messages she brought to us from Scripture about women in the Bible and their encounters with Jesus. One of the things I really loved was that her teachings were very interactive and had a lot of questions for us to think about and apply to our own lives. But the thing I most appreciated about Lynn is that she shared her own story with us and how Jesus has encountered her. I would have gone away from the weekend thinking the teaching was good but it takes it to another level to hear what someone has walked through and that they are having to live out what they are teaching. This is not just a good Bible study or a retelling of great Bible stories. These are things Lynn is encountering firsthand from the Gentle Savior Himself. That makes me leave the weekend saying that was a great teaching and a great teacher.
