Lance is originally from South Carolina and married Mary Nell in 1992, shortly after graduating from college. They have two amazing “kids” (Jacob and Caroline) and are now entering a brave new stage of life as empty-nesters.
Lance served in the U.S. Air Force for 21 years as an F-16 pilot, ending his tour with the Arizona Air National Guard at the Tucson International Airport. During the latter part of his time in the Air Force, Lance felt God calling him away from uniformed service and into vocational ministry. That led to completing a Masters degree in Discipleship and Church Ministries from Liberty Theological Seminary in Dec 2016.
New Life has been the church home for the Yarborough family since moving to Tucson in 2010, and Lance has served in various ministry positions. They have served together in Student Ministries from the very beginning, and look forward to what God has in store for them as Student Ministries Director.
Lance enjoys spending time with family playing board games and watching movies, tackling large household projects, and researching the latest gadgets and electronic wizardry.
