Our Savior’s will have a new staff member starting on June 1. Her name is Kellie Escovy, and she will be a remote learning student at Wartburg Seminary in Dubuque, IA, while she works with us 20-25 hours a week. This will be a three year appointment. Her main concentration during her first two years will be doing some of the things Colleen did. Her third year will be as a Seminary Intern.
Kellie brings a lot of energy and has come highly recommended by many people in the ELCA. Kellie is on what is called an Accelerated Ministry Track. She was identified early on as a candidate for ministry and will complete her bachelors and masters in six years instead of eight. We will have a Service of Beginning for her in a local park on June 6th. Watch for further details. And meanwhile, check out this article about Kellie here.
