CLMS Board of Directors Update

Despite the frigid temperatures, seven people with a passion for missions met in Edmonton at Concordia Lutheran Seminary from January 16th to 18th to plan for the CLMS path forward in 2020. 

          We thank the Lord for two new board members: Cathy Weger and Curtis Schafer.  Cathy will be our Treasurer and Curtis will take the role of Secretary.  Continuing on the board are:

  • Joyce Lobitz – President
  • Rev. Cliff Haberstock – Vice-President
  • June Barlund – Director of Ministry and Projects
  • Marilyn Witte – Assistant to Director of Ministry and Projects
  • Rev. Roland Syens – Pastoral Advisor

(L to R) Rev. Cliff Haberstock, Joyce Lobitz, Rev. Roland Syens, Cathy Weger, June Barlund, Curtis Schafer. Missing – Marilyn Witte

         A number of items came up for discussion, one of which was to address who should CLMS consider to be a “voting member”?  We have always assumed that every donor would WANT to be a voting member, which may not be true.  And it was realized that a number of donors are not members of an LCC affiliated congregation. It was decided that to be a voting member, donors must “opt-in” by sending in a membership form.  This was mailed out with the new brochure in February to all donors who gave in the last two years.

          We are updating our membership list in anticipation of more people coming forward to say, “I want to serve the Lord and support missions using the talents with which I have been blessed.” 

CLMS plans to hold its next AGM at St. Matthew Lutheran in Calgary on April 4, 2020. We look forward to the attendance of CLMS supporters in the Calgary area.
