Meet Pastor Lynn Williamson

Hello. My name is Pastor Lynn Williamson. I have been the pastor here at St. Jacob since 1989. I have focused on caring for the people of the congregation, getting new members for our Lord Jesus, and supporting the youth of the church. I am now married to LaShell as of June 10, 2006. LaShell is a kindergarten teacher in the Northwest School system. She enjoys Bible reading and Christian contemporary music. Our children are Keegan, Rylie, and Molleigh. My son Errett lives in Canton and works as a supervisor at a catalogue company. My daughter Megan works at a media company in Cleveland.

I was born October 27, 1952 in Toledo, Ohio, earned a Bachelor of Education Degree from the University of Toledo in 1974, and a Master of Divinity Degree at Trinity Lutheran Seminary in 1979. My internship was at First English Lutheran Church in Richmond, Indiana. I served as pastor of St. John Lutheran Church in Covington, Ohio and Associate Pastor at First Lutheran Church in Shelby, Ohio. I have also taken teenagers to five national Youth Gatherings, served as Bible Study leader and chapel leader at camps. My e-mail is

Pastor's Class: Learning about the Lutheran Faith
I teach a class twice a year to introduce inquiring people to Christian beliefs and the teachings of the Lutheran Church. I instruct the adult learners on the subjects of worship, the Bible, Lutheran history and the life of Martin Luther, stewardship, evangelism, and the organizational structure of the church.
