Join us for a Congregational Town Hall Meeting, Tuesday, September 14 at 7:00 in Fellowship Hall
The town hall meeting is an important step in calling the senior pastor. We will be discussing the Ministry Site Profile (MSP) and
asking if you have any questions on it. Bishop Patricia Lull, our synod representative will be there. The Church Council will be
voting on the MSP at their meeting immediately following the Town Hall Meeting.
Augustana Senior Pastor Position will be posted to the ELCA website once the MSP is approved by the Augustana church council. A reminder, if you know of an excellent candidate for Augustana’s Senior Pastor position, please fill out the candidate nomination form. Nominations are due September 22.
First Interviews After a few weeks of being posted, Bishop Lull will give the call committee 3-5 names of the best candidates for
Augustana. These will be highly qualified pastors. Bishop Lull expects that Augustana’s reputation will gain the attention of
many. The call committee will not be allowed to share the names of the candidates. Candidates may not want their congregations to know that they are considering another call, so everything will be done confidentially. Interviews will begin soon after
the call committee receive the names.
Gracious God, grant us peace during this time and open our hearts and minds for the presence of the Holy Spiri
