Augsburg’s New Senior Pastor, Paul Wollner

At its congregational meeting on Sunday, July 9th, the disciples of Augsburg voted overwhelmingly to call Pastor Paul Wollner as our next Senior Pastor.

The votes were 216 YES – 3 NO, plus 3 blank ballots.  Pastor Paul has joyously and humbly accepted the call.  The compensation & benefits motion passed by a similar margin, with one extra YES vote having been cast by a late arrival — 217 YES – 3 NO, plus 3 blank ballots.

Pastor Paul, his wife, Katherine, and their 4 boys plan to relocate to the Winston-Salem area in mid-August, and Pastor Paul’s first Sunday with us will be September 3rd.  Pastor Trexler will stay with us at least through September 15.  Check your e-mail, your worship bulletins, and your Beacon over the next several weeks for more information about plans for welcoming the Wollners.
