Pastor Todd Wilken, host of Issues, Etc., will be installed as Assistant Pastor at Trinity Lutheran Church (LCMS) in Millstadt, Illinois on Sunday, October 5 at 7 PM. The service will be followed with a coffee and cake reception.
Trinity is Pastor Wilken’s home church. Trinity and her Sr. Pastor Michael Kumm were very supportive of Pastor Wilken after he was fired by the LCMS on Holy Tuesday, last Spring and during the last several weeks of the restart of Issues, Etc.
Listeners to Issues, Etc. need not worry that this new call will interefere with Pastor Wilken’s hosting duties. His work as Assistant Pastor at Trinity will not interefere with his hosting duties.
Trinity’s support of Pastor Wilken and Issues, Etc. should inspire us all to support the show financially. (Click on the Issues, Etc. link on the BJS website home page and follow the links there to contribute.) BJS has already supported Issues with several hundred dollars in advertising revenue. BJS is now growing large enough via its chapter membership and its individual membership that it will soon be able to launch its own annual membership fund drive for the show. (See the “Financial Structure” section in the right column of the “Organization” page for more information on the Brothers’ financial structure.)
