Pastor of Faith Formation
Lynn Mikels
Lynn has served First Church in a variety of capacities since 1983 – but always involving ways that people are nurtured in faith.  Graduating from Garrett-Evangelical Seminary, she was ordained in 1997. She loves teaching people of all ages as they explore adventures of faith and life.  Lynn works closely with the Children and Family Education Commission, the Adult Education Commission, is the staff liaison to the Pre-School Board, and a regular member of the Soothing Stitches Prayer Shawl Ministry . She considers it a privilege to serve First Church and to share ministry with so many caring and energetic people.
Lynn and her husband Mike have four adult children and two delightful granddaughters.  When not at church, you may find her exploring one of Chicago’s many intriguing museums with them.
