At the end of January, Mr. Hilton Austin will end his tenure in his role as Director of Advocacy for our synod and we give abundant thanks for his work and ministry among us in this way. Because of his building these foundations, we will be able to continue with a person serving in this role. On February 1st, we welcome the Rev. Matt Steinhauer who will become the Assistant to the Bishop and Director for Advocacy for our synod. Pastor Steinhauer will be serving in this role 15 hours a week and continue as pastor of Faith Lutheran Church in Lebanon, TN.

On Sunday, January 19, 2020, Bishop Kevin Strickland's sermon will be aired on Day1, with host Peter Wallace. Day1 is the voice of the historic Protestant churches, presenting outstanding preachers from the mainline denominations.
Our retired rostered ministers and their spouses gathered at the synod office on December 2, 2019, for a time of worship and fellowship. Bishop Kevin Strickland gathered these faithful ministers as he led worship and addressed those gathered. Bishop Strickland then received comments and questions from our retired ministers and their spouses. The synod staff was present to share their ministry stories and responsibilities as the support staff to the bishop and the congregations of the Southeastern Synod.
