Divine Calls to be Extended

The LPS Governing Board will meet in October and plans to issue divine calls for the following
professorship vacancies.
 
  1. A male or female teacher for the position of professor of mathematics. The candidate
    will be able to teach Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry, and will have the ability to
    teach or a willingness to advance to higher mathematical levels over time. This position
    will fill the vacancy of Prof. Robert Huebner who retired at the end of the 2020–21
    school year.
  2. A WELS pastor for the position of professor of history and religion. This position will fill
    the vacancy of Prof. Mark Schroeder who accepted a call to serve at Peace Lutheran in
    Chandler, AZ.
  3. A WELS pastor for the position of professor of Latin and religion. This position will fill
    the vacancy of Prof. Steve Ehlke who will retire at the end of the 2021-22 school year.
Call #3 might not go out in October.
 
It is preferred that at least one of the two pastor positions be filled by a man who desires to
coach in the LPS football program.

The synod constitution for the calling of Prep School Professors was officially changed at the
synod convention this past summer. Names for prep professorships no longer require
nominations by voting members of the synod. Western Wisconsin District President Mike
Jensen will prepare a call list for the LPS Governing Board, seeking input from the synod’s
Commission on Lutheran Schools, the LPS Governing Board chairman, and the LPS president.

If you have a name of an eligible pastor or teacher that you would want to be considered for
the filling of these vacancies, you may share the name(s) with President Crass via email:
crassma@lps.wels.net All names provided to him will be shared with the District President.
