Pastor Paul Waldschmidt has accepted the call to teach Christian education and Old Testament. This call was necessitated by Prof. Kock’s decision to return to parish ministry at Atonement, Milwaukee, WI. A 1999 graduate who also earned an STM in Christian education from the seminary in 2020, he currently serves as pastor at Peace, Hartford, WI. He is also a circuit pastor and member of the nominating committee for the Southeastern Wisconsin District. In addition, he is serving as editor of the “Teach the Word” newsletter published jointly by Northwestern Publishing House, WELS Discipleship, and the seminary.
Please pray for the Waldschmidts and the congregation at Peace during this time of transition.
