Thanks for checking out our website! Our Savior’s is a vibrant and grace-filled congregation. I want you to know that faith grows here. I’ve witnessed it. I’ve experienced it. And our members want you to know that YOU are welcome at Our Savior’s. The people of our church are saints and sinners. They are regular folks who strive to follow Jesus, love each other, and serve in their daily lives.
I’ve been the Lead Pastor of OSLC since December of 2017. Before that, I served churches in North Dakota and Minnesota, as a Hospice Chaplain, and as an Intentional Interim Pastor.
Lisa (my wife) and I met and married as college students. (She’s the best “thing” that ever happened in my life.) We have a son and three daughters, a son-in law and a daughter-in-law, and are excited to be grandparents! There’s nothing better than spending time with my family. I love books, movies, music…and good food! But, not necessarily in that order. Don’t hesitate to reach out by phone or email.
Blessings! Pastor Jeff
Favorite Bible Verse: Return to the Lord your God, for God is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
My name is Anders Nilsen and I am the Associate Pastor at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church. I have been on staff since August 2018 and have absolutely loved serving this congregation, the community of Faribault, and getting acquainted with life in Minnesota. In my role at OSLC, I lead worship, preach, teach, oversee our visitation ministry, and am a member of the Spring Table which deals with outreach and communication. When I’m not at the church, I’m doing some sort of physical activity, listening to any music (except country), reading, walking my Bernese Mountain dogs, or seeking out a new craft brewery.

My name is Kira Anderson and I serve as the Director of Faith Formation at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church. I am a life-long member of OSLC and have served on staff since 2010.

Hello! My name is Megan Stahl.
I have been on staff at Our Savior’s since Summer 2016.
I serve as the Children’s and Youth Coordinator. I work with kids of all ages and not only provide programming but build relationships with them as well. My husband Chris and I live on our family farm just outside of Faribault. Chris continues to be supportive in my ministry and helps lead High School group alongside me. In my spare time I enjoy coaching Cross Country and Track as well as serving as a Death Investigator for the Steele County Coroners office. I love traveling and being outdoors. If I can get kids to remember one thing it would be that God loves them and so do we…no matter what!
