About Us

Lord of Life Lutheran Church is an ELCA congregation serving Farmington, Apple Valley, Lakeville, Rosemount and the surrounding communities. Lord of Life started in the fall of 1994 to help meet the spiritual needs of people searching for a home church, and to provide a ministry to people moving into the community. Our first service was held in April 1995 and in April 1997, Lord of Life became an organized church of The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

We are committed to hearing and sharing God's promise as God speaks to us, guides us, and inspires us to answer our call of discipleship and mission to make God first in our lives.

We are proud members of

St Paul Area SynodELCA

Pastor Jamie Thompson has been faithfully serving as Pastor of Lord of Life since 1995.

We have many opportunities for ministry and fellowship at Lord of Life, and we welcome anyone willing and able to lend a hand and support our Church, its members and our community.

If you would like to see what opportunities are available, please view our Shared Ministry Form for ideas and descriptions.

Beginning in 1994, Lord of Life has grown to a strong and supportive congregation. We began to gather together at Akin Road Elementary School in 1995 and moved to our permanent home in our newly constructed church in 2007.
