Call Committee News

Our Primary Pastoral Candidate has committed to the Call of Redeemer Lutheran Church! The Call Committee and the Executive Council met with the Primary Candidate on Friday evening, August 24th to discuss any further questions the Candidate, Executive Council or Call Committee members might of have needed answering. The Executive Council and Call Committee members are completely satisfied that this is the pastoral candidate for Redeemer Lutheran Church. The remainder of the meeting was to discuss and accept the Compensation Package for the candidate. This was accomplished.

Throughout this process, our Call Committee has followed the SC Synod Call Process. The next step in the process will be for the Primary Candidate to meet with Church Council along with the Call Committee to have conversation with the candidate and for the Church Council to vote on the candidate and the Compensation Package. Once that occurs, there will be a “Meet and Greet” with the Congregation, the Candidate and their family prior to having a Congregational meeting. At the Congregational meeting, there will be a vote on accepting the Candidate and their Compensation Package. Then there will be an official Letter of Call to the pastor for them to officially accept our call to Redeemer Lutheran Church. When all this is accomplished, the Candidate will tentatively start middle to late October as the new Pastor of Redeemer Lutheran Church.
