Pastor James Lampert, Youth Pastor/Missions Coordinator
Welcome! My name is James Lampert and I am the Youth and Missions Pastor here at Faith Alliance. It is an honor to be in leadership at a Christian and Missionary Alliance church.
In 2 Timothy 4:2, Paul writes to Timothy with these words…”Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage – with great patience and careful instruction.” The LORD led me to this passage at a young age, which began His work in my life. I have the privilege to work primarily with 6th through 12th graders. Although it may sound cliche to describe any church or ministry as Jesus-centered and Bible focused; the youth ministry here at Faith Alliance truly is. Our desire is to see youth come to know Jesus as their Savior and Lord, and to continue to grow into mature, faithful, and Godly men and women. We do this through Bible study and discipleship.
Faith Alliance is locally and globally involved in missions. There are many ways for people to get involved. We do a monthly Cram the Van, in which we collect donated supplies to give to different charities throughout the surrounding communities, we serve monthly at the Lima Rescue Mission, and we do yearly service projects for the community. Faith Alliance is also involved with Operation Christmas Child and Angel Tree Ministries. We also have yearly mission trips to a nation-wide location, Gabon, Africa, and Turkey.
On the side, I am involved in Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Along with God giving me the platform to speak at a variety of different schools during FCA meetings, I serve as the chaplain for the New Bremen High School football team. My desire is to see radical transformation in the schools and the New Bremen community by the Blood of the Lamb through the power of the Holy Spirit!
Gina Tangeman, Children’s Ministries Director
Hi! My name is Gina Tangeman and I have been on staff as a part time Children’s Ministry Coordinator at Faith Alliance since 2001. My husband, Matt, and I have been married for 19 years and we have 3 beautiful children! Jacob, 16, is a sweet, kind and fun young man who loves playing football for the New Bremen Cardinals! Ellie, 13, is a caring and giggly teen who is a joy to be around and loves playing volleyball for the Cardinals! Cale, 10, is an ornery, energetic little man who makes us laugh a lot!
The Children’s Ministry Department is full of fun, energetic children who love our Lord. We are busy through the year with Bible-learning classes and activities, service projects, outreaches, vacation Bible school, and having a lot of fun together! I encourage you to check out our KIDS church program and/or Wednesday night classes. We offer nurseries on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights for children birth through 3 years old and also we offer classes for children ages 3 through 5th grade on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights.
Thanks for checking our Faith Alliance’s website and we hope to see you soon. If you have any questions relating to Children’s Ministry, please, feel free to contact me at the church.
Kristin Lampert, Care Coordinator/Preschool Director
Hello! My name is Kristin Lampert. I am the preschool director here at Faith Alliance. Preschool is such a fun age and a great opportunity to learn about Christ at a young age! I love the honest and genuine heart these kids have. God is working in their hearts to show His great love and kindness. As care coordinator, I serve as a communication venue for the pastoral care needs of the whole church family and community—connecting those in need of care and prayer with persons within the life of the church who can minister and meet those needs. Thanks for checking out Faith Alliance’s website! We hope the website has been helpful and we hope to see you soon! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at the church.
