Our Pastor, Justin Pomije, is a 2016 graduate of Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, Wisconsin. Before joining us in June of 2021, he served Hope Lutheran Church in Indian River, MI as well as Our Savior Lutheran Church in Gaylord, MI.
In 2015 Justin completed his Vicar year, a yearlong internship, serving Immanuel Lutheran Church in Salem, Oregon. During his years of study and preparation to become a pastor he also helped serve churches in Georgia, Colorado, Wyoming, Florida, and California.
Justin and his wife, Kari, met during his year in Oregon and got married in November of 2016. God has since blessed them with two wonderful kids, Michael and Eliana. They enjoy going on walks/hikes that are stroller friendly during the warmer months and spend time playing cards and board games or doing puzzles during the colder months.
