About Us

Chris and Dawn Byars

A Church Rated is a ministry of the Byars Family. With a passion for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and helping families to grow together in faith the concept of A Church Rated was born. Pastor Chris Byars currently serves as pastor of St. John's Lutheran Church in Gillett, WI. Dawn is a homeschool mom raising the children with a strong, traditionally modeled education. Simul Iustus Et Peccatur is from Luther's motto - Simultaneously Justified and Sinful. The reality of this is that we are made new in Christ and Christ alone.
