The church council has invited Pr. Peter Strommen to serve as interim directing pastor. In accordance with our church constitution, the synod recommended Pr. Peter Strommen and the council approved.
Pr. Peter has extensive experience as a pastor, bishop, and interim pastor throughout the midwest. There will be opportunities to get to know Pr. Peter after October 3. Pr. Peter will primarily work “behind the scenes” until then.
Pr. Peter, the call committee, and the synod want to be clear that he is NOT a candidate for our permanent directing pastor. His role is to help shepherd us between the time of Pr. Vern’s final Sunday and a new directing pastor is called.
We look forward to getting to know Pr. Peter later this fall.
