The Call Committee made a unanimous decision and Executive Council affirmed that decision in a special meeting on Tuesday, August 17 to hire Pastor Heather Hansen.
On Sunday, September 12, a special congregational meeting will be held following 11:00 worship for a congregational vote to affirm the committee and council’s recommendation. All voting members of Abiding Presence Lutheran Church are encouraged to attend.
Pastor Heather joined us in worship on August 28-29 providing the message for the day and presiding over Holy Communion. If you were not able to attend in person, you can watch the online service on our YouTube Channel.
Pastor Heather Hansen currently holds a part time call with Lutheran Campus Ministry of San Antonio. She would be hired on a contract basis for approximately half time hours by Abiding Presence. The mechanics and language of contract hire vs call may sound different, but the job description and expectations for both parties are the same. Pastor Heather would serve as Associate Pastor for Abiding Presence.
Please join in thanking the members of the Call Committee who worked diligently to find the best person and pastor for our congregation. Members of the committee are: Matt Humlie-Chair, Laura Cauley-Hrncir, Steve Johnson, Lon Oakley, Katie Ruder, Donna Stewart, Pastor Steve Cox.
