About us

Rich Lyons spent 20 years as a minister of the United Pentecostal Church, before a series of events caused him to take a rational look at his faith.

In the following years, he gradually debunked and rejected one-by-one, the many doctrines of the church where he preached.

Eventually, he left that church and finally left faith altogether. That process was quite painful, and resulted in Rich being abandoned by his family and friends, and losing not only his home and job, but also losing a career and a way of life.

Today, Rich and his wife, Deanna Joy, live in Seattle and are active in the atheist and skeptic communities there. They host a podcast called, “Living After Faith,” which addresses the process of coming out of religion, and how to live again after leaving the life of faith.

In “Living After Faith,” they discuss ways that together, we can develop our own skills for positive living. We can be as diverse as humanly possible, yet provide for each other community, support, encouragement, and even a shoulder to cry on.

Life only has meaning if WE give it meaning. What is meaningful to you may not be to me. No matter. I want to help you find YOUR best way of living with meaning. And I NEED that same help from you.

Living After Faith has nothing to do with living a meaningless life.
