Call for 8th Grade Teacher Candidates at Bethany Lutheran Church and School – Naperville, Illinois, by Pr. Rossow
Our eighth grade teacher is retiring this year and so we are looking for prospects to call or hire and then colloquize.
Bethany is a very happy and enjoyable place to serve the Lord. Church and School work seamlessly together. Male teachers are encouraged to serve on the Board of Elders. Our female principal is a non-voting member of the board of elders. Principal and church staff meet weekly for two hour staff meetings where they plan and administer the work of the parish.
The parish is organized around Walther’s six duties of the church. The elders meet every few years to set new and fresh goals based on the six duties.
