St. John’s calls interim senior pastor Frederick Hill
We are delighted to announce that the St. John’s Church Council has voted to make Pastor Frederick C. Hill our interim senior pastor. Pastor Hill spent time at the church and met our staff on Tuesday, July 19, and Council voted to extend him a six month contract as interim senior pastor at a special meeting that evening. As our interim senior pastor, Rev. Hill will lead our church until the Call Committee identifies a permanent senior pastor.
Pastor Hill brings with him 42 years of pastoral experience in a variety of settings. St. John’s will be his ninth position as an interim pastor; he has also served as a parish pastor, a nursing home chaplain and administrator, and in college ministry. Pastor Hill is enjoying his fifth decade of marriage to his wife, La Nell, who works for Lutheran Child and Family Services of Illinois. They have two grown daughters and two grandchildren.
Pastor Hill will begin work at St. John’s on August 1st, and join us the first time for worship on Sunday, August 7th. We invite you to welcome him to St. John’s, get to know him, and hold him and his family in your prayers.
