Kitchener, Ont. – After serving for more than 30 years, Stephen Klinck, managing director of Lutheran Laymen’s League of Canada (Lutheran Hour Ministries-Canada) informed the league’s Board of Directors that he plans to retire at the end of May 2018. Mr. Klinck began his service to the league in September 1986 as Manager of Field Services becoming Managing Director ten years later in 1996.

“We give thanks to God for the service Stephen has provided our organization over the years,” noted Ian Adnams, president of LLLC. “We wish him God’s richest blessings in his future endeavours and service to God and His people.”

In addition to heading the daily operations of the league at its Kitchener office, Mr. Klinck also served as an advisory member of Lutheran Church–Canada’s Committee for Communications and Technology and the East District Communications Committee. Over the years he conducted numerous outreach workshops and presentations across the country, and assisted with national and regional convention arrangements including chairing the Local Arrangements Committee for the 2015 East District Convention.

In 2016 Stephen received the Delta Chi Medal from Concordia Lutheran Theological Seminary, St. Catharines in recognition of this service to the church.

“Stephen brought a unique combination of organizational and management skills, creative talent, and a passion for sharing the Gospel that allowed the league and Lutheran Hour Ministries-Canada to flourish under his leadership,” President Adnams said.

The five-member volunteer Board of Directors has begun a search for a successor. The job details are available online at http://www.lll.ca/HR.

Lutheran Laymen’s League of Canada is an auxiliary organization of Lutheran Church–Canada.
