A Message From Pastor Brent

October 6, 2021

It is with a heavy heart and a new sense of purpose that I'm announcing my resignation from Trinity Lutheran Church effective Sunday, October 24. My last day in the office will be Thursday, October 21.

I believe that God is calling me into Hospice Chaplaincy -- a more specialized ministry. This is a calling that I have been discerning with a lot of thought and prayer for a while now. This has not been an easy decision for me because I've been with you these past 12 years.

Throughout our time together, I've used my unique gifts to serve this parish to the best of my ability, but feel that it is time to use those gifts in a different ministry setting. I've grown to love you and it has been an honor and a privilege to have served you in good times and tough times. I've enjoyed journeying with you in your faith.

You are a wonderfully gifted and loving congregation who will continue to make a difference in this community. I see good ministry happening at Trinity and I know that there is more to come in the future.

Part of my leaving is to make sure that I "assist" the new pastor in establishing themselves in the role of your pastor. That will mean that I will not be available for weddings, funerals, baptisms, or any other pastoral acts after I have left. I know that this will be difficult, but it is best for the community.

I've been in contact with the Synod office and they will offer support to both you and me in this transition. They will work to provide an interim pastor who will help you discern not only what gifts you have, but will help process what gifts your next pastor will possess to lead and journey with you.

Blessings on your new journey.

Pastor Brent Halverson
