Faith Lutheran Affiliations
Lamb of God Lutheran Church:
Faith Evangelical Lutheran Mission was originally sponsored by Lamb of God Lutheran Church in Spartanburg, SC. In 2008 the congregation there called Pastor Crandall to be their missionary to Beaufort. On April 26, 2015, Faith Lutheran Church became the newest member congregation of the LCMS. Faith Lutheran Church, no longer a mission, but now a chartered member congregation of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod, called Pastor Ted Crandall to be their first pastor. On March 6, 2016, the Rev. Dr. John Denninger, President of the Southeastern District of the LC-MS officiated at the installation.
