Call Committee Updates

Update 6/14/18

We have completed the update of our Ministry Site Profile which has been approved by the Church Council. Our profile has been sent to the ELCA office in Chicago and approved by them and sent to the Bishop at the Minneapolis Area Synod. The next step is for us to receive names from the Synod and begin the interviewing process. There are three ways that potential candidates can be submitted for consideration for our Associate Pastor position: 1) Self nominations from eligible candidates. 2) Faith members can nominate and recommend candidates for consideration. 3) The Synod staff with the Bishop will recommend candidates.

There are nomination forms available at the Welcome Desk along with a box to place the forms in. The next step for the Call Committee is to finalize the interview process and prepare for interviews. We ask for you prayers to guide the Committee as we continue the process of calling our new Associate Pastor. 


Update 5/2/18

The Call Committee met for the first time on Monday April 30th. The Committee received an overview of the call process from Pastor Dale and Pastor Craig Pederson who will be guiding us in this process from the synod. John Bruellman will serve as Chairperson, Richard Scott will serve as Vice Chairperson, Teresa Shields will serve as Chaplin and Matt Woelfel will be communicating updates from the Committee to the congregation on a regular basis as we go through this process. The Committee is in the process of updating our Ministry Site Profile for potential candidates to view. The next scheduled meeting of the Call Committee will be on Monday May 21st at 6:30pm. The committee is honored to serve the congregation and we ask for your prayers as we go through this call process.
