Call Report – August 12, 2019

Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod

Pastor, teacher, and staff minister call report

8/6/2019 – 8/12/2019

The call report details when pastors, teachers, and staff ministers change positions within WELS. The Conference of Presidents oversees and coordinates the calling process.

Correction: The call report posted on 8/5/2019 showed that Rev John Cook accepted a call to St Paul LC, West Bend WI. It should have been listed as a dual parish call, which includes St Peter LC, West Bend WI. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.
