This month, Holy Trinity Lutheran Church joins Advent Lutheran Church of Upper Arlington and Epiphany Lutheran Church of Pickerington in a new Trustee model of leadership for Jacob’s Porch Lutheran Campus Ministry at The Ohio State University. Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Dublin is expected to join the collaboration later this fall when their pastor returns from sabbatical. Designed in consultation with the current Jacob’s Porch Board and approved by the now defunct Ohio Lutheran Campus Ministry Board and Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Jacob’s Porch’s new constitution identifies a Trustee Congregation by its commitment to support the campus ministry with at least 1% of its offerings annually and three leadership volunteers: one serving on the Trustee leadership board and two others deployed across Ministry Support Teams for Programs, Operations, Development/Communications, and Property.
Holy Trinity has been donating 1% of its annual offerings to Jacob’s Porch for more than a decade now. At its October meeting, the Council at Holy Trinity designated the Council Partner for Outreach Ministries to serve as our Trustee in the new leadership model. We are now seeking two more additional leaders to serve on the Ministry Support Teams identified above. If you are interested to learn more about this exciting new opportunity in ministry, contact Council partner Mark Abell, Director for Equipping Ministers Laura Hudson, or Pastor Steve Wachtman.
