Obituary : Pastor Lynn Koch of GT Church in Spring Township killed , husband seriously injured in motorcycle crash

Thousands of church members are grieving after one pastor was killed and another, her husband, was seriously hurt in a motorcycle crash.

Pastor Bryan Koch and his wife, Pastor Lynn Koch, both of GT Church in Spring Township, were riding on their shared motorcycle in Bern Township around 6 p.m. Sunday, when they collided with an SUV, police said. According to investigators, the couple were traveling south on Grange Road when the northbound SUV struck them in the southbound lane.
Lynn was killed; Bryan was flown to Reading Hospital, where he was last listed in critical condition.

 "It feels almost unthinkable right now. It's surreal for a church family," said Executive Pastor Scott Kramer. Kramer told 69 News that the husband and wife have served the GT Church staff and its thousands of members for nearly three decades. Bryan has served in his role for 27 years while Lynn was ordained in May of this year.
