Reverend Jane Mountain: is our Pastor. Pastor Jane and her husband Chuck reside in Muskegon, MI.
The people of Our Savior’s and the Muskegon community make being the pastor of Our Savior’s an exciting job. My call to this church brought me to Muskegon, and I am grateful to be working in a courageous church that chose to become a Redevelopment Congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). As a redevelopment pastor, I spend half my time in the community and half my time in the congregation. Redevelopment is a process of looking for where God is active in the community and then joining in that work.
The call to Our Savior’s is my first call as a pastor. Prior to coming to Muskegon, I worked as a family physician in Denver and then as a wellness advocate and educator, author and publisher. I am a graduate of Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg. I live with my husband, Chuck, who is a graphic artist. We have a son, daughter-in-law and two granddaughters who live in Syracuse, NY.
Dawn Morningstar: Administrative Assistant
It has been a wonderful experience working for Our Savior’s Lutheran. Never could I have imagined that I would be working as a church Administrative Assistant. I feel so blessed and grateful for this opportunity. I have learned so many new things and get to see and work with an amazing group of people. I have three daughters, one who is slightly autistic. I was born and raised in Muskegon, MI. I lived in Tucson, AZ for 5 years. Which is where I obtained my associates in Applied Sciences from Brown Mackie College. I came back on December 16th, 2014 to help take care of my ill father. Currently, I am attending Ashford University for my Bachelor’s in Alternative Medicine, in hopes to heal those who need it most. I am a sensitive, deep, spiritual woman who is open minded. As far back as I can remember, I have always loved to help and serve others. With the being said, I am here to assist you at Our Savior’s Lutheran with anything I possibly can.
