Announce the interim appointment of Pastors Robert J. Lietz and David T. Mensing to fill the fifth year chair as co-instructors in our Concordia Theological Seminary.
This is to announce the interim appointment of Pastors Robert J. Lietz and David T. Mensing to fill the fifth year chair as co-instructors in our Concordia Theological Seminary. This chair was left vacant by the illness and death of Pastor Paul R. Bloedel, who was scheduled to teach the fifth year courses beginning with the fall term. This appointment was made after consultation with the pastors named, as well as with Pastor Bloedel’s successor in Seattle, Washington, Pastor Edward J. Worley, who was also considered. The Committee on Theological Education was unanimous in its decision, and the appointment also received the unanimous consent of the Concordia Lutheran Conference in its annual convention assembled, June 30, 2002. A permanent appointment to this chair will be considered after the close of the 2002-2003 academic year.
Pastor Mark W. Dierking, Chairman
Committee on Theological Education
