We are pleased to announce that Pastor Jennifer Arnold has accepted the call to serve as Assistant to the Bishop for Missional Leadership, effective September 1, 2017. Her work will entail overseeing formation events for pastors, deacons and lay leaders and sharing the responsibility of working with congregations in transition with the Assistant to the Bishop for Congregations in Mission (Rev. Kristin Nielsen).
Jennifer writes, “I am so grateful to be joining the ministry of our Greater Milwaukee Synod, serving you on the Bishop’s staff. I was born and raised in the northern Chicago suburbs, but have served all of my congregational ministry in this synod at Trinity in West Bend, Lord of Life in Kenosha, and St. John’s in Brookfield. My husband, Warren, and I are blessed with three children who go to school in Oak Creek, where we live. When we’re not at work or school, we enjoy going to Milwaukee Brewers games, attending our daughter’s fastpitch softball games, and spending time together at home. I look forward to serving together in the work that God has for us in the Greater Milwaukee Synod.”
Please join us in welcoming Jennifer to the synod staff!
