Executive Pastor / COO Search

Hello Gloria Dei,

In the early part of May our Gloria Dei Church Council President, Sara Dannen, and I sent an email letter to the congregation regarding our search for an Executive Pastor / COO. As we explained in that letter, this position is open to qualified clergy and lay persons within the church.

As an update, our Call Committee has met twice. At our second meeting last week we heard from Pastor Renee Splichal-Larson from the SD Synod of the ELCA. She described the call process to us and will be helpful to source possible candidates from the ordained world.

We will be posting this position on INDEED and LinkedIn this coming week. It may be that a qualified candidate surfaces from the Business and/or Non-Profit world.

As mentioned in our previous letter, the Call/Search Committee is made up of six people: Dan Blue (chair), Natalie Eisenberg, Kate Patrick (council), Nick Sershen (council) Sandy Berven (staff) and me, Pastor Tim.

If you or someone you know, either pastor or layperson, is interested, please send a resume and cover letter to me, Pastor Tim Selbo, at tim.selbo@gloriadei-sd.org.

I invite the entire congregation to please keep this Call/Search process in your prayers. This is an important position on our staff and for our congregation, and we have full confidence that God will lead us to a strong pool of candidates, and ultimately, to the right person. Thanks.

For worship this weekend we continue in the Sermon on the Mount. Please read Matthew 6:1-18.

We are together in Christ,

Pastor Tim
