Pastor Harland Goetzinger has accepted the call to serve as the next director of the Pastoral Studies Institute (PSI) and as a member of the seminary faculty. This call was necessitated by Prof. Jon Bare’s decision to accept the call to be the president of Asia Lutheran Seminary. A 2001 graduate from the seminary, Pastor Goetzinger currently serves St. Paul, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. He has also been serving as president of WELS–Canada, as chairman of the Canada Mission Board, and as a member of the WELS Board for Home Missions. “We thank God for giving us the right man at the right time, and we look forward to the blessings the Lord will bestow on Professor Goetzinger’s labors,” President Treptow said.
Please pray for the Goetzingers as well as the congregation at St Paul during this time of transition.
