Matt and Jenni (Mikkelson) Lahmann
Matt Lahmann graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biblical Studies in 2003 and moved to Ocala, Florida to begin serving in the ministries of Central Baptist Church and Ocala Christian Academy. Jenni (formerly Mikkelson) finished her Bachelor of Arts degree in Church Ministries that following fall and the two were married in December of 2003.
Matt and Jenni served the Lord together at Central Baptist Church for 9 years until God put a desire in their hearts to plant a church in the greater St. Louis area. They started deputation in the summer of 2012 followed by a year of traveling to raise support for this new work.
They began the City Light Baptist Church in St. Charles, Missouri in September of 2013. In the past three years, they have helped to lead over 100 souls to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, baptized over 70 believers, and discipled many people in their walk with the Lord. They are passionate about seeing people follow Jesus along with them, and feel as though God has given them a front row seat to watching Him work.
They have watched City Light Baptist Church grow to a regular average attendance of 170 people each week and will be going to two services in order to accommodate for the space needed. They have four children, Elijah and Josiah (ages seven and five), as well as six-month-old twin baby girls Cadence and Charity. To God be all the glory, great things He Has done."
