District editor position now open

January 4, 2016 No Comment

canluthEDMONTON – With the November/December 2015 issue, Jon Teschke completes his service as interim editor of the ABC District News section of The Canadian Lutheran. Teschke had served in the role since the March/April 2015 issue of the magazine.

“I am very thankful for the service of Jon over these past several months,” said Mathew Block, editor of The Canadian Lutheran. “He has helped to keep the important work of Alberta and British Columbia congregations at the forefront of our readers’ minds, giving us all much to pray over and to thank God for.”

With his departure, the district is currently looking for a volunteer to fill this vital role. The editor is responsible, under the supervision of the ABC District, for sharing the stories of local congregations in Alberta and British Columbia as they proclaim the Good News of Christ in their own locales. To that end, the editor receives news and photo submissions from congregations and other Lutheran entities in the ABC District, edits the stories, and then submits them to The Canadian Lutheran’s editor for inclusion in upcoming issues. The district editor also seeks out news-worthy stories in the ABC District and encourages congregations to submit stories/pictures for the magazine.

Those interested in volunteering for this unpaid position are invited to contact Janice Ruff, Senior Manager of District Services at jruf@lccabc.ca.

In the meantime, please submit submissions for the ABC District News section directly to The Canadian Lutheran’s editor Mathew Block at communications@lutheranchurch.ca.
