Jeremy and Lacey Crowell
Pastor Jeremy Crowell and his wife Lacey currently serve with Association of Free Lutheran Congregation (AFLC) Home Missions and FLAPS in Naknek, Alaska. Jeremy started pilot training with his father (who was also a flight instructor) when he was 15 years old. After high school, Jeremy attended Everett Community College and became a licensed aircraft mechanic. During that time, he also pursued advanced pilot training and ratings with MATA. He eventually became a flight instructor and worked with the ministry for several years as a mechanic and flight instructor. He assumed the role of Director of Flight Operations for MATA upon his father’s death. In late summer of 2006, the Lord called him to attend Association Free Lutheran Theological Seminary (AFLTS). He married Lacey Gee from Arlington, WA in August of 2007. During their years at seminary and on internship, the Lord confirmed their call to Naknek, Alaska, to serve as a missionary pastor, pilot, and mechanic. After graduation in May of 2010, they moved to Naknek in August of 2010. In April of 2011, God blessed them with their first child Malachi, who keeps them quite busy!
