Meet Our Pastors

Shalom Ya'll!

We are Pastors Michael and Sarah Butler of The Altar Church. Called by the Lord early in marriage, Michael graduated with his Master's of Divinity degree from Asbury Theological Seminary and began to pastor here since 2002. Our journey has changed, grown, shrunk and been renewed many times and we hope to invite you all to join our family of 7 including biological and adopted children, and recently a daughter in-love.  Locally thriving here, our children attend St. Cloud public schools as Sarah teaches full-time. We value accepting and loving people as they are and hope to share our hearts with you too.


As "the Altar" literally is a place to meet God, we invite you to The Altar Community Church where our focus is on "worship and prayer" by intention. Each of our ministries begin with worshipping the Lord before we engage in purposeful activities. Prayer and adoration of the Lord brings change readily, and we actively pursuing a closer walk with Christ Jesus, while  applying Biblical principles.

Currently, this summer of 2023, we are physically repairing and upgrading the facilities while preparing for an upcoming church relaunch. 

We desire for you to feel welcome and experience the love of Christ upon entrance. We aim to love better, doing life together in community with you. We value unity in all walks of life and background, as the Holy Spirit entwines all aspects of our lives as we strive to live Godly in word,  & in deed.
