This is how the "call" went out and was accepted:
------------------------ C A L L S A C C E P T E D -----------------------
Skorzewski, Rev James R, St Peter - Appleton WI, 09/09/2008
To start daughter congregation, Solid Rock Ministries
The Enthusiasts already had a Solid Rock Ministry, so this project became The CORE.
The WELS Yearbook PDF, which enjoys plenary inspiration, has the following information about St. Peter:
Saint Peter [PreK & S] 920-733-7225; Fax: 739-3615
Christenson Christian J, Glende Timothy P,
Skorzewski James R -- [E] 8, 10:30, Thur 6:30pm (8, 10, Thur
N2749 French Rd Freedom WI 54913-8919.
I thought St. Peter was keeping The CORE at arm's length, but this suggests Ski is on the pastoral staff. This is not shocking, whatever it means, because Tim Glende grew up in a WELS/non-WELS congregation where Floyd Luther Stolzenburg set up shop as a Church Growth expert. In WELS, that means an unemployed guy who was kicked out the LCMS ministry--for cause--and divorced by his wife. After that fiasco, which was transformed into a pastoral call by VP Paul Kuske, anything else looks rock solid in comparison.
