President Harrison Won the Election. Now He Must Work for Unity

Congratulations President Harrison

Congregations Matter extends its congratulations to President Harrison on his victory in last week’s Synod presidential election.  We join the church in praying for God’s richest blessings upon him as he carries out his important responsibilities over the next three years. He must work to collaborate with the WHOLE Synod to provide more transparent, fiscally responsible, and trustworthy leadership.

Pastors David Maier and Tim Klinkenberg agree: Synod needs more Truth and Light!

Congregations Need Truth and Light from Synod Leadership

Read Pastor Timothy Klinkenberg’s letter to his congregation about the need for “Truth and Light” in our Synod. Maier and Klinkenberg’s nominations totaling 57.4% of all nominations show of support for a change in leadership far greater than Harrison’s support for re-election. Synod is saying: “It’s time for openness and truthfulness in our Synod leadership.”
