The Divine Call Process

As we search for our new senior pastor there are two sources from which we consider potential candidates. One is a list of names compiled by Kansas District President Panzer. The other is you, the congregation.

This is your chance to nominate someone for possible inclusion in our list of names for call consideration. Perhaps you have visited other LCMS churches, or are a former member of another LCMS church, at which you observed a pastor that you think is committed to the written Word, and possesses the compassion, prayerfulness, temperament, interpersonal skills, and presence in the pulpit that will serve us well.

If so, there are two avenues for you to access the form:

  1. Hardcopies are available in the entry to both worship locations. After completing the form, you may drop it into the drop box, also in the entry to both locations or mail it to the Mission church office to the attention of Gretchen Hollman. 
  2. An electronic, fillable form is available on our website. You may click on this link to access the Pastor Nomination Form after which you have three options in completing the form:
  • Complete the form online, save it to your computer and send it as an email attachment to; or,

  • Complete the form on your computer, print it out and place it in one of the drop boxes or mail it to the Mission church office to the attention of Gretchen Hollman; or

  • Print the form, complete it by hand, drop it into the drop box or mail it to the Mission church office for the attention of Gretchen Hollman.

Nominations will be accepted through Friday, June 30. Whether you nominate someone or not, thank you for your prayerful consideration in our call process, asking God to reveal to us quickly the person he has chosen for us. Should you have questions, please feel free to contact Steve Henslee at
