After the morning chapel service, Tuesday, November 1, faculty, staff and students at Concordia Lutheran Seminary (CLS) in Edmonton heard the news: “The CLS Board of Regents has appointed Dr. Edwin Lehman, LCC president emeritus, to serve as acting president.” This appointment will last until Christmas, at which time the board intends to have a longer-term Acting President in place. The board’s action follows the resignation of Rev. Dr. Manfred Zeuch at the end of October.

Dr. Lehman served the same role at the seminary in 1999/2000 between the service of Dr. L. Dean Hempelmann and Dr. Andy Bacon. 

A resident of Edmonton, Dr. Lehman retired as LCC president in 1996. He was the district president of the Alberta-British Columbia District of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (part of Lutheran Church–Canada federation), when the church established the Edmonton seminary in 1984.
