Pastoral Call Committee Update
- by Gwynnae Byrd
The Constitution of the ELCA charges the Congregation Council with appointing a Call Committee to fill a pastoral vacancy. At our last council meeting, we reviewed applications from many excellent candidates, and ultimately selected 7 people to serve.
The Constitution allows no more than 2 members of a call committee to be current council members. The council decided to name Pastor Frank Espegren and Joel Kimmelshue to represent the council on the committee. The other members who have agreed to dedicate their time for this important work are:
Ashley Ford Maryann Hanner Pastor Jon Haug Jim Kuhl Catherine Zanzi
Joel Kimmelshue Pastor Frank Espegren
Because he has prior experience serving on a call committee, Joel was selected to serve as the chair.
Please keep these members in your prayers as they meet to discern the will of God in welcoming another pastor to join our team of rostered leaders at St. John's.
