Pastor Michael Millum

I have been in full-time ministry for nearly 30 years, ten of them as a United Methodist pastor, and the remaining nearly 20 as an ELCA pastor.  For the past nearly 16 years I have served as the pastor of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Torrington, CT.  My wife, Deborah (she goes by Deb) is an attorney who works for an insurance company called RLI, with an office here in Atlanta.  We have three sons, Drew, 23, Keith, nearly 21, an Trent 19.

As your  pastor, I come with the goal of getting to know your congregation, and providing some stability with worship, and the various ministries and programs of the congregation.  You’ve been through this recently enough that you know how this works.  But for the year I am with you, I’m your guy.  I will  be here to visit, especially the homebound in the congregation, and provide pastoral care for the sick and the dying, and spiritual nourishment through God’s Word and sacrament.  I am excited to meet you and do whatever I can to facilitate the call process as you look to call a full-time, settled pastor.  I’m excited! Eager! And I thank you for this opportunity.  God’s blessings as we journey together through this next year!
