The Rev. Timothy D. Jahn

Email: jahntim@gmail.comprTim (2)

Pastor Tim has been serving at Advent since July of 2017. He brings a passion for preaching, creative worship, and forming disciples of Christ from all age groups. He is the first pastor of Advent to be called by an extensive search and vote of the congregation.

Pastor Tim believes that God has given each and every person special gifts and talents, which they can use to bless others and make the world a better place. When we build our community based on the wonderful gifts we have, and encourage one another to use them, God can do wonderful things through us!

While he is still early in his ministry with us, his top priorities are building up youth ministry, encouraging a culture of thankfulness and generosity, and supporting the people of Advent in their mission of serving the Lake Ann community.

Office Administrator

Laura Ketchum-Jahn
Email: adventlakeann@gmail.com

Laura began as an Interim in September 2022 and took on the full position in January of 2023.

While Laura’s background is in mental health and spiritually integrated counseling, she finds serving behind the scenes at Advent is a source of joy. You will often find her working with her “assistant”, 4yo Lars, who keeps the office hopping. Laura enjoys her role as a communicator for the church and finds creativity in the many tasks she tends to.  Though life is busy, she enjoys doing jigsaw puzzles, reading, listening to music (live or canned!), and is usually keeping busy with her 4 kids!
