Senior Pastor Vacancy Update
June 29, 2017

 

CALL PROCESS RESOLUTION APPROVED: 

The Leadership Council is resolved that Messiah Lutheran Church will soon be without the ministry of a resident Senior Pastor and will initiate the process to call such adhering to the articles of the Constitution and Bylaws of Messiah Lutheran Church. You may read these articles clicking on BYLAWS in the menu on the right.  Copies are also available at the Welcome Center.

 

CALL COMMITTEE NOMINATIONS AND APPOINTMENT: 

Nominations for Call Committee consideration are now open to all members of Messiah Lutheran Church through July 25, 2017. Members of Messiah may submit nominations by completing a Nomination Card, located at the Welcome Desk in the Gathering Area, and placing it in the Call Committee Nomination Box. You may nominate yourself or another member, but only confirmed members of Messiah Lutheran Church will be considered for appointment to the Call Committee. 

 

Once the nomination process is closed, the Leadership Council will then prayerfully review nominations in collaboration with Elder and Staff representatives. The LC will then appoint a Call Committee, notify appointees and the congregation, and then set an initial Call Committee meeting date. The LCMS Minnesota South District President, Rev. Dr. Dean Nadasdy, has agreed to attend this meeting at our request to provide information on the call process to new committee members.

 

CALL PROCESS COMMUNICATION: 

The Leadership Council and Call Committee will communicate regularly with the congregation verbally, in print, and electronically to keep the congregation informed of necessary steps in the call process, new developments, and progress made towards calling our new Senior Pastor. The congregation will be an inclusive partner in the call process and Messiah's voting members will issue the call to our next Senior Pastor.
