Pastor Justin and his wife Erin moved to Amery in the summer of 2013. Their connection was forged at Northwestern University of St. Paul, where Justin earned his degrees in Pastoral Studies and Bible. In 2014, he furthered his academic journey at Bethel Seminary, graduating with a Master of Divinity, with a focus on ministry leadership.
With an unwavering commitment to preaching the transformative Word of God and extending the boundless love of Jesus to the community, Justin’s passion remains twofold. to preach the Word of God and to reach out to the community with the love of Jesus. Salvation is through Jesus alone and this message is what our world is in dire need of.
Justin and Erin navigate life with their five children, including their eldest who has now embarked on the exciting journey of college. United as a family, their pursuit is clear: to intimately know Jesus and to actively make Him known in their community.
Grounded in their shared faith, the family embraces the timeless wisdom encapsulated in Philippians 1:9-11:
“This is my prayer for you: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ – to the glory and praise of God.”
