Jamie, Michelle, Savannah, Annabelle, Josiah, Piper, & Shiloh Fischer
Appointed in January 2015, Jamie Fischer and his wife Michelle (Roman) Fischer, a Penn Yan native, joined the full-time staff family at LeTourneau in mid-February 2015.
Previously, Jamie and Michelle spent three-and-a-half years in East Asia as missionaries, sharing the gospel through relationships, discipleship, and teaching English as a second language. Prior to that, Jamie held a pastoral position in Jacksboro, Tenn., serving youth and young adults and coordinating other outreach events and ministry activities church-wide. Jamie graduated in 2005 with a Masters of Divinity in Pastoral Care.
Since beginning this new chapter of ministry at LeTourneau, the Fischer’s service to the Lord has been blessed as they have faithfully served the surrounding churches and believers in the region and energetically discipled their staff toward growth in Christ. Their leadership at camp has fostered a growing staff team that is encouraged and inspired to pursue all that God has for LeTourneau! Both Jamie and Michelle are encouraged for the future and what the Lord plans to do through them and the staff for the region!

She has a strong gift for marketing and interior design in addition to an extensive background in vocational ministry as she spent all of her childhood in a missionary household.
