OUR PASTORS

LEAD PASTOR

Craig Michaelson

I have had the joy and privilege of serving as Lead Pastor of our amazing staff and ministry at Faith Community Lutheran Church and Schools since 2007. Since that time, God has blessed us with the opportunity for our Church and Schools to expand from one campus to three campuses. The Lord has also given us wonderful mission and ministry partners in this community and beyond to serve with and support.

 
Prior to serving here, I served in ministries in southern Arizona and southern California.
 
You may have seen my wife Amy signing during the 9:30 am service. In addition to her involvement in Deaf Ministry as a volunteer, Amy works as an Accountant.
 
Amy and I grew up in Iowa and lived in different Midwest states before ministry.
 
Our son John is an Auto Technician at Lexus of Las Vegas. He is a blessing to us, and to our cars!
