Farmer-turned-Pastor Comes to Preach at 
Faith Lutheran Mission Church


Pastor Harvey Jeffers, a former farmer and rancher, will be the guest preacher at Faith Lutheran Mission Church in Eau Claire at 5 p.m., Sunday May 30.  The congregation, affiliated with Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC), worships at The Lutheran Church of St. Matthew, 1915 Hogeboom Street, with a time of food and fellowship to follow.  


Pastor Jeffers will preach a sermon titled “Truth or Consequences.”  He owned and operated a 1,600 acre farm and ranch in North Dakota for more than 30 years.  After graduating from Luther Seminary in 1998, Pastor Jeffers led a church in Scranton, North Dakota, then led a music ministry at Grace Lutheran Church in Oconto Falls, Wisconsin for eight years.  Pastor Jeffers is married to Doreen, who is also a Lutheran pastor.  They have two married daughters and two grandchildren.   


Faith Lutheran Mission Church is the first and only in the Eau Claire area to affiliate with LCMC, a centrist, congregation-based Lutheran church body which recognizes Scripture as the sole source and norm of faith and life. Details about LCMC and its mission can be found at www.lcmc.net.


As a church dedicated to mission work outside its church walls to the greater community, Faith Lutheran Mission Church will dedicate 10% of Sunday’s offering to Good News Jail Ministry in Eau Claire, and another 10% to East European Missions Network, an evangelical, inter-Lutheran mission organization that sends missionaries, mobilizes churches and networks believers in the former Soviet bloc countries.


Anyone is welcome to attend both the 5 p.m. service and the meal and fellowship time to follow.  Details about Faith Lutheran Mission Church can be found at faithlutheranmc.org.
