The Excitement is Building...
By Pastor Jon Haakana

As most of you are aware, on June 12, 2016 Mount Olive Lutheran Church in its Vision Assembly voted to place a Call to Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri for a candidate from the 2017 graduating class to become an Associate Pastor of Youth and Young Adults.

Since that meeting the Mission and Ministry Council appointed a Call Committee to finalize a job description and complete Call documents to send to our Minnesota South District office. The district then contacted the seminary to declare our intention to call a candidate from the 2017 class.

The seminary then contacted Mount Olive to arrange interviews of potential candidates. The committee put together questions to be used for those interviews. As I write this article, I have just returned from Concordia Seminary in St. Louis Missouri, where Nick Krug and I, representing the Call Committee for the Associate Pastor of Youth and Young Adults, interviewed four candidates for that position. The committee will evaluate those interviews and submit up to three names to be considered for that position to the District Office by March 1.
