The Governance Board and representatives from MMLT, our Staff and our Preschool director met with Pastor John Kost recently to discuss Bishop Gafkjen’s forwarding him to us to be Interim Pastor after Pastor Albertin retires at the end of October. Pastor John has over 35 years of experience, including postings in Whitestown and more recently in Valparaiso. Pastor John has for the last few years been an interim pastor at several congregations as well. Our group had a wonderful meal and discussion with Pastor John and feels he will be an excellent spiritual, administrative, and family-oriented leader for our congregation, leading us through Pastor Albertin’s retirement and through the completion of our call process when we will have a new full-time pastor. Pastor Kost will be with us Sundays through Wednesdays every week starting in November, and I know is greatly looking forward to meeting everyone and sharing in the message of Jesus.
