Hard to believe, but it was exactly one year ago last night that I received my call into the Office of Holy Ministry. Who would have thought that when I started at the seminary in the summer of 2001, that I would eventually be placed in Gillette, Wyoming. Though I haven’t been a pastor for a full year yet, it has been one year since I received my call.
For those interested, last evening at Concordia Theological Seminary, they held their annual placement service for men to enter the Office of Holy Ministry. 64 men received calls last night. God’s blessings to each of them as they finish up their time at the seminary and prepare to begin their work at their churches.
