Regional Pastors to be Elected at Upcoming Conventions

September 20, 2018 3 Comments

The Regional Pastor serves as the ecclesiastical supervisor of the pastors, deacons and congregations (“the Members”) who reside and serve in his Region. As of January 1, 2019, LCC will have three regions (the number and configuration of regions is subject to revision over time) consisting of:

  • the West Region;
  • the Central Region; and
  • the East Region.

Responsibility

The Regional Pastor is the spiritual leader of the pastors, deacons and other professional church workers in his region. In his responsibility for Ecclesiastical Oversight, Building Community, and Care for Members, he will nurture brotherly support and dialogue to encourage unity of doctrine, practice, mission and ministry in his region.

The Regional Pastor will emphasize God’s greatest gifts to mankind (1) the saving work of His Son as expressed in the Gospel and (2) God’s constant provision. The Regional Pastor will, therefore, support congregations in identifying and acting upon opportunities for outreach to advance the Gospel and bring lost souls to Christ. The Regional Pastor will also emphasize Christian stewardship of time, talent and treasures to encourage congregations to appreciate God’s gifts and return to God a portion of His blessings. To do this, he will show dedication in visiting with Pastors and congregations in his region on a regular basis.

The Regional Pastor is responsible for coaching, mentoring, and advising Pastors within his region in their Divine Calls to serve, lead and guide their respective congregations and parishes. The Regional Pastor will establish relationships with Pastors in his Region with, and through, the network of Circuit Counsellors. The Regional Pastor will support the work of the circuit counsellors in the region and appoint a circuit counsellor in the event of a vacancy, in accordance with the Synodical Bylaws. The Regional Pastor will also perform such duties as may be assigned to him from time to time by the Synodical President.
