Pastor Lee Laaveg
Pastor Lee’s passion is to help people discover the grace of God in a personal faith relationship with Jesus Christ.  He is a graduate of Augustana College in Sioux Falls, S.D. and Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN.  He was ordained into the Ministry of Word and Sacrament in June, 1984.  He has pastored in a variety of ministry settings – rural congregations in a multiple point parish, single point congregations, and large multi-staffed churches – in North Dakota, Iowa, and Illinois.  He also served as Director of Development and Church Relations for Ingham Okoboji Lutheran Bible Camps.  He began serving Faith Lutheran in October 2011.
He enjoys the challenge of preaching and teaching the Word of God.   He desires Faith Lutheran to be a powerful blessing to the community of Spencer and the surrounding area.
