Our Pastor: 

Rev. Jamey B. Authier

Pastor Authier grew up in Herron, MI, on a farm outside of Alpena.  A graduate of Alpena High School, he attended Michigan State University in East Lansing, MI, graduating in 1994 with a Bachelors of Science degree in theoretical mathematics.  He then attended Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, OH, and graduated with Master's of Divinity degree in 1998.


Pastor Jamey has three children:  Parker, Stella, and Margo.  He is married to Tracey Marie Milbauer-Authier.  They live in Clinton Township, MI. Pastor's family has several unique realities:  the 3 children are with Pastor Jamey and Tracey every other week (they are with their mother and step-father the other weeks), Parker has a severe peanut allergy, and Stella has a tree-nut allergy.  Needless to say, Pastor's family needs to stay away from nuts!!  This is the main reason we have a "peanut-free" building, and how we have become more sensitive to the different allergy challenges.


Before coming to Faith Lutheran Church September of 2008, Pastor Jamey served the following parishes:

          1998-2001  Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church, WV

          2000-2001  St. John Lutheran Church, Martins Ferry, OH

          2001-2008  Cross Lutheran Church, Clinton Township, MI


Having lived on a farm in Herron, MI, school in East Lansing, MI and Columbus, OH, a year internship in East Northport, NY, years in Wheeling, WV and lastly back in Southern Michigan...Pastor Jamey has a proven love of the State of Michigan!!  Pastor Jamey is an avid reader, sports fan, movie watcher, game player...you would be hard pressed finding activities that he doesn't like!
