The Seekers would like to thank those congregational members who submitted names of individuals for consideration as our new pastor. Those names have been provided to the synod office and added to the mix of interested candidates to be weighed against our congregation’s specific needs and desires as put forth in our Ministry Site Profile. 

After the synod completes the vetting process and submits to the Call Committee names of those who may be the best “fit” for the diverse needs of Desert Hills Lutheran Church, the process of interviewing will begin.

Please continue to pray for our church, Pastor Ron, and your Call Committee. May the power of the Holy Spirit move our new Senior Pastor to come forth.
