About Chris Lyford

I’ve been doing Marriage Prep now for 25 years, and have found it to be one of the most fulfilling experiences in my life.

My calling is to work in “the Lord’s vineyard” – the church. I have been laboring for 40 years now in the work of teaching, catechizing, evangelizing, family life ministry, and communications. My degree is in Theology. I was the Director of the Offie of Marriage and Family Life in the Archdiocese of San Francisco for more than 6 years, which is where I developed this program. I am a certified California Healthy Marriage Practitioner.

My vocation is marriage. I have four kids and 4 grandkids, and a saintly wife. We have been married 34 years on September 3rd, and the ‘wine’ keeps getting better!
