Our Church – All Are Welcome
Faith Lutheran Church is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). We are one of five such congregations in Janesville, Wisconsin. The ELCA is a community of faith that shares a passion for making positive changes in the world. Our faith is built around a strong belief in God as made known to us in Jesus Christ. Through worship, service, and education, we practice our faith, grow our relationship with God and experience God’s grace in our lives. We also work hard to put our faith into action. In today’s complex world, we strive to make a difference in practical, realistic ways. We are currently living out our faith by beginning an intentional Latino evangelism and outreach in our neighborhood. Outreach is a big part of how we understand our calling, and happens in all age groups.

Rev. Jeff Tomberlin – Interim Senior Pastor – firstname.lastname@example.org
About Me: I am a graduate of U-W Madison. As a student-athlete, I was a member of the Wisconsin Badger 1978 Big Ten Championship Cross Country Team. Following graduation, I came home to be a partner in Blue-Ridge Top Registered Holsteins between Spring Green and Dodgeville. Later, I went on to work for East Central Select Sires as a Member Service Representative while living in Hillsboro and developing a customer base in a new area.
After receiving God’s call to pastoral ministry, I began my seminary training at Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque. I participated in chaplaincy training (C.P.E.) in the Intensive Care Unit at the Sisters of St. Joseph Hospital in Orange, California. I served a Pastoral Internship at St. John’s–Prairie Hill in rural Brenham, Texas. I graduated from Wartburg Seminary and was ordained in May 1989 at Grace in Elroy,WI. I have been blessed to lead and serve both large and small congregations for the past 26yrs.
I have been married to my wife, Lisa for the past 36 years. We have been blessed with 3 children and 5 grandchildren. We live in the Madison area. I am honored to walk beside you through this time of transition: reflection; renewed vision and commitment to Christ and Christ’s Church; and the process of calling your next pastor.
