The Call Committee wishes to provide you with an update on the quest for a new Pastor for our congregations.
We currently have no candidates to interview. Seminary students are graduating soon - good news! There are 79 first-call graduates looking for a call. The unfortunate news is these candidates are available to the entire ELCA - not just the Northwest MN Synod. In Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota alone, there are 92 openings.
If you crunch the numbers, there are far more pastoral openings than candidates.
The Call Committee does believe God will provide. We must all be patient. Please pray for the pastoral graduates as well as the Call Committee.
