Lam was born in Chicago and raised in a suburb called Tinley Park, IL.
Lam’s wife, Sherrisa [pronounced SURE – ISA], is from Sidney, MT, and their two little girls, Chloe (12) and Colleen (11), were both born in Astoria, Oregon.
“Before we moved to Langdon we were living in Glasgow, Montana where we were on sabbatical, and before that we pastored at Wibaux Assembly of God in Wibaux, Montana. We have also pastored in Astoria, Oregon,” Lam said.
Lam’s hobbies include shooting, lifting, watching the Chicago White Sox, Bears and Blackhawks, listening to classic rock, and playing his electric guitars.
”My little girls are involved with softball, go Panthers!“ Lam said, “I am also coaching softball with a great guy, Jeff Kruk; this guy makes me laugh ,and he is fun to be around, total blast,” Lam said.
Lam explained that when he and his family first arrived in Langdon and at Emmanuel Evangelical, the welcome they received was overwhelming.
“My wife and I walked into a great congregation that has immediately loved us in a way that we were totally not expecting,” Lam said, “We are so blessed by what God has done by bringing us to Emmanuel Evangelical Church.”
Right now, the Lams goals as pastors of this church are to love the people and to let God lead them right now because they know that the Lord has great things in store for this church.
Lam also has big plans for the men’s ministries aspect of the church and asks that if you are a man looking to get connected with other men to stop by.
“We have already had small conversations of going to see the Minnesota Twinkies as a group and in the fall to Grand Forks for some hockey,” Lam said.
“I would also assume something that is going to be important to this church is being relational with one another and focusing on discipleship,” Lam continued.
Currently, Emmanuel Evangelical’s summer service hours are worship at 9:30 followed by a time of fellowship.
“I look forward to being very much a part of this community – Blessings,” Lam said.
