OUR PASTORS

  • MIKE SAGER

    Senior Pastor

    OFFICE HOURS: TUESDAY - FRIDAY, 9:00 AM - 5:30 PM


    Mike's family spent a lot of time overseas when he was quite young. From junior high on, Seattle became home for him. Fishing and spending time outdoors are still things he loves to do.  As a senior at the University of Washington, he became a follower of Christ through the ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ (CRU). After graduation, and a couple of years in the financial market, Mike decided to go to seminary in southern California at Talbot /BIOLA University. (He has also since earned a doctoral degree from Trinity International University in Deerfield, Illinois.) It was in California that Mike met his lovely wife, Holly. In November, 1986, they were called to serve at the E. Free Church in Morris, Minnesota, where their three adult children were born and raised. Mike was called to serve here at Faith Church in March, 2006. He has a heart for the church to become prayer-filled and mission minded. He will tell you that we have a great opportunity to invest our lives in eternal things, while we carry out our day to day calling of loving God fully, and serving those whom He puts in our path.

  • SHANE BURNS

    Pastor of children's ministries

    OFFICE HOURS: TUESDAY - FRIDAY, 10:30 AM - 5:00 PM


    I knew that I was going to be the Pastor since I was 4 years old. There has simply not been anything else that I have wanted to be. I did not know that it would be a children's pastor until much later, when I stepped into the role, simply because it was needed. As soon as I started I knew that I found my spot. The spot where all my dreams and visions and talents and skills come together. Besides a passion for Kid's ministry, I enjoy playing and watching sports and reading.

  • JONATHAN POINDEXTER

    Pastor of worship & Connections

    OFFICE HOURS: TUESDAY - FRIDAY, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM


    Jonathan was born and raised on a cattle ranch in South Dakota. From a young age he enjoyed both music and people. After earning his Bachelors and Masters degrees at Trinity International University in Chicago, he came to serve Faith Church in 2014. He loves that he gets to use his musical gifts and help people connect with one another and more importantly Jesus on a daily basis. He is married to his beautiful wife, Tricia, and has one daughter, Emma. He enjoys being outside, reading good books, spending time with friends, and watching movies. 

  • SCOTT OWENS

    PASTOR OF STUDENt MINISTRIES & LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

    OFFICE HOURS: MONDAY - THURSDAY, 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM


    Scott came to Faith Church in November of 2016 after serving in Crosslake MN for almost 12 years. He got called into ministry from a desire to have authentic, intentional conversations with others about Christ. He wants nothing more then to see people that don't know Jesus  and for those that know Him to be IN AWE of Him everyday. Scott and his wife Carrie have five+ kids (Isabelle, Elijah, Mathias, Clara, Samuel and one coming in December) and most of their energy goes into putting their faith into action at home and modeling that to everyone that God brings into their path. He believes in being faith-rooted at home, authentic in community and resourced passionately from the church. He loves soccer, Stonehouse coffee, the book of John, MNUFC, biographies, Moleskin Notebooks, the book of Romans, Piggy Blues, fall, acronyms, the book of Ecclesiastes and students that don't play practical jokes on his car (affectionately known as the JellyBean).
