The RLC Pastor/Deacon of Faith formation Call Committee has been formed. Thank you to all who expressed interest or suggested names of those who might help with this important task of the congregation. RLC’s Church Council unanimously approved these members to serve on the Call Committee.
Pastor Lauren Wrightsman (ex officio)
Pastor Marty Wyatt (ex officio)
Please pray for the call committee as they begin this exciting and important process. We will be working closely with the St. Paul Area Synod. Look for more information coming soon!
Pastors are those called to the Ministry of Word and Sacrament, Deacons are those called to the Ministry of Word and Service. Both pastors and deacons are called to serve a congregation through congregational vote. To learn more about deacons in the ELCA you may wish to visit: https://download.elca.org/ELCA%20Resource%20Repository/What_is_a_Deacon.pdf
Much of the call of the Pastor/Deacon of Faith Formation will focus on the members, youth and children in the congregation. The Pastor/Deacon will share responsibilities of preaching, teaching and pastoral care with the pastoral team.
Bishop Lull and the synod staff will include those individuals who are actively seeking a call, individuals staff think may be a good fit and open to a new call, as well as nominations from RLC members. Candidates from a variety of locations will be considered. Bishop Lull and her team are driven to bring forward individuals who have the gifts which are needed in this pivotal time for RLC.
Thank you. Names were received through Sunday, June 12, 2022
In consultation with the synod call team, the St. Paul Area Synod will provide 3-5 candidate profiles.
PURPOSE: TO IDENTIFY, INTERVIEW AND PROPOSE A CANDIDATE FOR CALL AS PASTOR/DEACON OF FAITH FORMATION MINISTRIES
The Call Committee represents RLC to prospective candidates, who are themselves interviewing RLC through the Call Committee. The process is 3-way: RLC, the candidate, and the St. Paul Area Synod. The synod represents the ELCA in the process and has vested interest in securing the best possible candidate for RLC.
