Through a 3-year grant from ELCA Lutheran Disaster Response and our Strategic Initiative Fund, I am pleased to announce that The Rev. Dr. P. Morgan Gordy has been called to serve as Assistant to the Bishop for Disaster Ministry. Pastor Gordy will begin this work with us on April 12, 2021.
We give thanks for her willingness to say yes to this call and walking with us as a synod in this important work. We also pray for Christ Lutheran of Nashville, TN, where she will be leaving as their pastor.
Join me in welcoming Pastor Gordy to our synod staff.
