Bishop Candidate Forums
On Sunday, February 16, our synod’s five conferences each met in
Assembly to vote on nominees for the Office of Bishop of the Northeastern
Minnesota Synod. Per actions at these assemblies the names of Pastor Paul N.
Svingen and Bishop Thomas M. Aitken came forward and will appear on the first
ballot for bishop at our Synod Assembly May 2-4, 2014 at Breezy Point
Two Candidate Forums are planned for members of the synod to meet
the two nominees. These one hour forums will be held Saturday, March 15 at Elim Lutheran Church in Duluth and Saturday, March 22 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Brainerd, at 2:45 pm. The forums immediately follow the Bishop’s Theological Convocation already taking place on these dates and places.
Please continue to pray for the synod, its congregations and
leadership, and the process of electing a pastor to serve the call as Bishop of
the Northeastern Minnesota Synod.
