About Josef & Lynette Sykora

This is a web page about the Sykora family. Josef Sykora was born in Brno, Czech Republic in 1973, when the country was controlled by Russian Communists. Lynette Sittig was born in Saratoga Springs, New York, USA in 1975 into a democratic nation. Josef didn’t really hear about how to have a relationship with Jesus Christ until he was 17. Lynette made a commitment to Christ at age 6. But these two very different journeys interesected in Ostrava, Czech Republic in 2001 when Lynette and Josef were in the same place, at the same time for a class on Revelation…and boy was it! Josef and Lynette fell in love, and after two years of dating and living in different countries (Lynette in Hungary as an FM missionary, Josef in Czech as a missionary to university students), they were married and together attended seminary to prepare to return to Europe together. And so they did, in October 2006, working jointly with the Free Methodist church and the Cirkev Bratska Church. Josef as pastor and teacher, Lynette as member care provider, counselor and both as parents to two beautiful boys, Simon (5) and Luke (almost 3).
