This past Sunday, the congregation of University Lutheran Church of Hope in southeast Minneapolis voted to call Pastor Jen as their Lead Pastor. After nearly 12 years of ministry at Salem, Pastor Jen feels the Spirit taking her this new direction and she will conclude her ministry at Salem on Sunday, June 28. Linked here are two letters: One is from Pastor Jen sharing this decision; the other is from Salem’s Executive Committee explaining what will come next. Please read them over and feel free to be in touch with questions. Salem’s journey into SpringHouse Ministry Center and our transformation is Spirit-led. We trust the same Holy Spirit to continue to lead us into this new season of ministry.
Salem Executive Committee-Linda Hanson, Antone Melton-Meaux, Josh Jorstad, and Kate Rime
We join them in the grief of a goodbye and the gratitude for Pastor Jen’s faithful ministry.
