Miscellaneous Information:

Parish Administrator Howie Kamholz is the oldest of three siblings born to Florence and Ernie Kamholz of Chicago. Growing up on Chicago’s southwest side he attended and was confirmed at Mount Greenwood Lutheran Church in Chicago. After graduating from Morgan Park High School, and then boot camp in Louisiana, the United States Army gave Howie the opportunity to travel a bit for a tour of duty in Germany.

Shortly after being honorably discharged from the military Howie married Pam, his high school sweetheart. They moved to Round Lake to raise a family. There they attended St. Paul Lutheran Church in Round Lake where their son, Michael, attended St. Paul Lutheran School. Howie taught Sunday school, led the Lutheran Pioneers and served on various boards.

After Michael graduated from Shoreland Lutheran High School in Somers, Wisconsin, Howie’s developing passion for Outreach and Evangelism led to a transfer of membership to Heritage Lutheran Church in Lindenhurst where Howie eventually served as President of congregation and Building Committee Chairman. Shortly after the new church at Heritage was dedicated Howie learned that Faith, Antioch had called a pastor to serve as resident missionary. Howie and Pam transferred to Faith and became involved in Evangelism and Outreach ministries. Howie served on the Ministry Evaluation & Development Team that re-organized ministry at Faith and after that new structure was in place served as Faith’s first Deacon of Evangelism. Howie now serves the Faith Parish Council as the Deacon of Communication.

Shortly after Howie and Pam became Faith members their son Michael and his family also joined Faith when they moved to Antioch. Howie’s two grandchildren attend our Faith Lutheran School. Howie and Pam’s many hours of volunteer service have blessed both Faith church and school. They are pleased so many others have also come to know the blessings of Faith their family has enjoyed.

Howie’s past work life includes various technical and managerial assignments with Ameritech, as well as software development and project manager assignments for Supplier Systems Corporation. Bringing his strong management, IT and project management background to serve Faith Howie is excited to daily serve our Lord and the Faith family in the capacity of Parish Administration.

While many days he gets to enjoy riding his motorcycle to work his other preferred recreational activities, including bicycling, fishing and canoeing, most often wait for him at the family’s summer retreat on a lake in Minnesota. You are welcome to stop in the school campus office any time and get to know Faith’s Parish Administrator a little better.
