15 Jun A Special Announcement
June 15, 2019
Dear Messiah Lutheran Church and School families,
We wish to thank you for your patience as the School Board and church leaders of Messiah have been working hard to chart the course for our school leadership next year.
As you probably know, several weeks ago we extended a call to Pastor Joshua Conradt to serve as our Headmaster at MLCA.
After prayerful deliberation, Pastor Conradt has now officially declined this call, and will continue serving at his current parish in Wisconsin. It is not uncommon for a pastor in our church body to reach such a decision and to decide he still has unfinished work to complete where the Lord has already placed him. Pastor Conradt was very kind and complimentary of both our church and school, and we thank him for participating in the process so graciously.
The official search for a Headmaster will resume soon. But in the meantime, the School Board has asked me to announce that this year we will be served by an Interim Principal, Ms. Alison Smith.
Ms. Smith has been a beloved member of our church and school family for some years, is an experienced teacher, and is already showing herself to be a capable leader. She will continue to teach 2nd grade this year, while simultaneously wearing the “hat” of Interim Principal. The Board is working with her and making plans to ensure she has adequate help to get everything done. The teachers have built an excellent team spirit and are energized already for next school year. It’s shaping up to be a great year at MLCA!
We expect that with Ms. Smith’s capable and calm presence at the helm, MLCA will continue to serve our students and families and provide an excellent Christ-centered, classical education.
If you have questions please contact me or Clayton Brandt, our School Board Chairman (firstname.lastname@example.org).
And please offer your support to Ms. Smith in both prayer and encouragement, as she takes on this important leadership role.
In the Service of Christ and His People,
Pastor Tom Chryst
Messiah Lutheran Church, Keller, TX
