Lydia Ranger is an exuberant and dynamic singer, recording artist, pastor and speaker.  Lydia reveals a fun loving and energetic spirit which is evident from the moment you meet her. 

In Lydia, what you see is what you get.  As a dedicated wife, mother of two grown sons, a beautiful daughter-in-law and three grandchildren, she has served alongside her husband, Senior Pastor James Ranger at New Life Center in Bakersfield, California for over 21 years.  During this time, the church family has grown from 45 to over 2500 in regular attendance. 

Lydia’s voice has been heard all over the world through many different venues such as: singing the National Anthem at the Staples Arena for the L.A. Lakers, national and international conferences, numerous women’s retreats as well as ministering weekly to her local church family in sermon and song. 

In Lydia’s own words, “Music has always been an important part of my life; it energizes me, it heals me, it reaches me like nothing else can, it is my passion. My hope is that my music will bring healing into your life the same way each of these songs has brought healing into mine.  May they shatter the darkness in your life so that the love of Jesus will shine through.  It is also my hope that as you listen to my music, it fills your life with joy and…you learn to smile again.  I am passionately in love with Jesus Christ.  He is the reason I sing, He is my song, without Him there would be no song.”
