The past few months have been rather busy on the organizational side of the Brothers of John the Steadfast (or Steadfast Lutherans). We have restarted much of the organization, including having a new Board of Directors. At our first meeting, we discussed bringing on another Associate Editor to assist Pr. Eric Anderson and I in the task. We decided to find a man who has the reputation for being a dead orthodox Lutheran and also a conscientious workhorse. We unanimously decided to ask Pr. Andrew Packer to come in as both author and Associate Editor. Upon consideration, Pastor Packer agreed to come on board.
Pastor Packer will help out the blog side of the organization which will free me to help in a couple other projects that will be unrolling in the coming year. It has also allowed me to zero in on working with Pastor Hull on our 2017 Conference (FEB 17-18, 2017 in Tomball, Texas). Stay tuned as our major announcement on that will be coming soon.
Here is Pastor Packer’s bio:
Andrew Packer is the pastor of Our Savior Lutheran Church in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. He graduated from Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne with an M.Div. in 2012. He was ordained and installed as the pastor of Our Savior on June 24, 2012. He has been married to Destiny since 2001. God has graciously blessed them with six children so far: Ethan, Abigail, Allison, Olivia, Lucia, and Micah.
