Pastoral Profile Survey

The Pastoral Profile survey is LIVE! Your personal feedback is important to us.

Get started on your SURVEY HERE. Please complete survey by April 11.  Paper copies are also  available at the Welcome Desk.  Paper copies need to be returned by April 8.

Sr. Pastor Nominations

Coming soon….if there is someone you would like the Call Committee to consider, you will soon be able to nominate that person right here on the website.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Yes, it’s true!  Pastor Steve has announced his plans to retire next year after 40+ years in ministry, 22 of which faithfully leading the body of Christ at St. Timothy.
Following Pastor Steve’s December announcement, the Board of Directors prayerfully appointed a Pastor Call Committee to begin the recommended study and planning process, with support from the LCMS District Office.  This diverse, representative group of active members invites our entire church body to participate in this important process by:
  • Praying and Fasting:  Let us humbly open our hearts and minds with prayer and fasting, asking the LORD to give us all a spirit of hopeful anticipation and discernment.  Prayerfully consider the direction of our church’s mission and ministry, and the potential characteristics of a new pastor who will help shepherd the flock into a new season of ministry.
  • Providing Input:
Complete our Survey:  In mid-March a survey will go out to all St. Timothy members.  Your personal feedback on characteristics, goals, objectives, etc. is important to us so we hope to hear from each of you.
Give Nominations:  During the call process, you will have the opportunity to provide pastoral nominations.  WE invite you to begin considering and praying over potential nominations now!
  • Staying Informed:  This is a time of change you may have questions.  Ask!  You have found our page devoted to the Call Process and our effort to keep everyone informed.  Please be sure to check out the Sunday bulletin and emails for further information as it is available.  Or CLICK HERE to submit a question that you may still have after looking through this website.  
We want you to know, too, that Pastor Steve is assisting  the Committee with his wisdom and guidance.  He has offered to stay on at St. Timothy for a period of time, to help orient, connect, and advise the new pastor, as they mutually agree it would be beneficial. Our prayers are with Pastor Steve and Rosalyn as well, for their preparation and transition into a new phase of their life together, when that time comes.
Prayerfully and Respectfully,
Bob Hartman, Co-Chair Board of Elders and Jeff Sjurseth, Chairman Board of Directors
The Call Committee members are:  Bob Hartman – Chair, Kevin Arnold, Calli Dretke, Heather Lehrmann, Kathy Kolkhorst, Ravi Manuel, Sarah Baden Spurgeon, Jane Ullrich, Glyn Willborg, Student Representative: Eden Rohan, Pastor Jeff Doria – Associate Pastor at St. John’s Lutheran Church and Circuit Adviser, and Pastor Jon Braunersreuther –  LCMS District Advisor.
