Gabe and Rebekah Lyons founded Q Ideas in 2007, a learning community that mobilizes Christians to advance the common good in society. They convene leaders in America’s most influential cities and equip them to engage public life in winsome and thoughtful ways. Most recently, Rebekah launched Q Women, a series of events educating and connecting women around topics they face, helping them flourish in their communities, church and culture.
Gabe is the author of The Next Christians: Seven Ways You Can Live the Gospel and Restore the World and co-author of UnChristian: What a New Generation Really Thinks About Christianity and Why It Matters, a bestselling book based on original research that revealed the pervasiveness of pop culture’s negative perceptions of Christians.
Rebekah recently released, Freefall to Fly: A Breathtaking Journey Toward a Life of Meaning , a memoir connecting her anxiety to unresolved calling. She teaches and encourages women to confront depression, panic and anxiety disorders by awakening to the ultimate calling God has for each of them.
Prior to launching Q, Gabe served on the team that co-founded Catalyst, the largest gathering of young church leaders in America. After seven years of leading the Catalyst movement, he recognized that there was a deep need within the American church for heightened cultural exposure and understanding, Gospel-centered critical thinking, and active collaboration among church leaders who would chart the future of the church in the West.
After living in Atlanta, GA for most of their adult life, in 2010 Gabe and Rebekah decided to move their family to the heart of post-Christian culture, New York City. They lead and serve within Trinity Grace Church, a family of neighborhood-based churches founded in 2006. Gabe and Rebekah’s work represents the perspectives of a new generation of Christians and has been featured by CNN, The New York Times, Fox News and USA Today. They have three children.
