The Brothers of John the Steadfast (BJS) are pleased to welcome Southern Illinois District President Herb Mueller to preach at the Vespers service on the first night of our annual two day conference, February 12-13, 2010 in Naperville, Illinois.
BJS started the tradition of having a bishop preach at the conference when it welcomed Northern Illinois District President Dan Gilbert to last years conference. This year it looks like we will have a second DP joining us to preach the Divine Service. Look for an announcement on that in the days to come.
Herb Mueller has served the SID as president since the early 1990’s. He is a great friend to Issues, Etc. which is also BJS’s favorite new media organization. President Mueller has led the Southern Illinois District to be a solidly confessional and traditionally Lutheran district. To get a sense of his strong leadership you can read his presidential address to the district convention this year by clicking here.
President Mueller is also a highly touted candidate for the presidium of the LCMS. We know of hundreds of congregations who have already nominated him for the office. Among most traditional and confessional Lutherans the buzz is that Matt Harrison is the leading candidate for the presidency and President Mueller is the leading candidate for office of First Vice President.
In addition to preaching the Vespers service we hope to have some time for questions and answers for our distinguished guest preacher.
