March 18 Update

Brady Bargman, a member of the Call Committee, read the following letter in the Sunday morning services:

Dear friends at Messiah Lutheran,

I have been blessed and honored to be a part of your search for a Senior Pastor!  I had not been seeking to leave my current position at all; but the Call to Messiah has really forced me to take seriously the possibility that God could be calling me and my family to leave what we have known for 7 ½ years.  From the interview process to my recent visit to Mounds View, I have seen a loving, eager staff and energized leaders at Messiah.  I am convinced that the future of Messiah is bright.

Still … no matter how excited I am about the potential of serving at Messiah, I simply cannot shake the overwhelming conviction I sense from God that my time in Appleton is not done yet.  My family is thriving; and I feel my gift set is still a very good match to the needs here at Faith.

I am convinced that, while we will not be serving together in the same community, we are nonetheless kingdom partners.  As St. Paul once said to the Philippians — I give thanks for our partnership in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Even in different states, we continue together the important work of pushing back darkness with the light of Christ and making known the salvation we find only in Him.

I know that your search for a new Senior Pastor will continue with faith and with determination to follow the Holy Spirit’s lead.  I have invited our entire family of Faith Lutheran to join me in praying for you over the next few months as you seek the right man to join you in the mission of “sharing the Savior and developing disciples.”

Until the whole world hears …

Pastor Aaron Rosenau
Faith Lutheran Church
Appleton, WI
