I will be Ordained into the Holy Ministry on June 3rd, +AD+ 2007 at St. Peter's Lutheran Church in Ft. Wayne Indiana at 3:00 pm. Any rostered LCMS clergy who would like to participate are asked to wear clerical collars, alb or cassock and surplice and red stole.
I will then be installed as the third pastor at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Middleville Michigan on June 10th, +AD+ 2007 at 4:00 pm. Again, any clergy who would like to participate are asked to follow the same instructions above.
I have waited a long time for this and have done a lot to prepare myself to be a worthy candidate. Yet, all my preparation has been worthless had God not called me through the work of the Holy Spirit to serve His Church with faithful Word and Sacrament ministry. If you are not able to come to either service or participate, please pray for me and Good Shepherd as we enter into a partnership of faithful Gospel ministry.
