Call Committee Update Nominations for Senior Pastor closed on Jan. 7 with 21 received from congregation. List of candidates was sent to LCMS MO District office. Those pastors nominated from congregation will be notified immediately to determine if open to receiving a call. The District office will be notified of those candidates open to a call so the District President may add their names to District’s list of pastors. Once completed list is obtained from District President, Call Committee will begin to contact the other pastors on the list to determine if they, too, are open to a call. All candidates open to a call and interview will be reviewed by the Call Committee. Please continue to keep the call process in your prayers. [Steve Schild, email@example.com]
