Messiah Lutheran Church is under the leadership of Interim Pastor Ron Zschoche (pronounced like “chucky”) while we go through the process of discerning the future of our ministry to the Mt. Vernon area.
For congregations like Messiah that belong to the ELCA, an Interim Pastor is someone who has received specialized training in the best use of the interim period for the benefit of the congregation. The Interim Pastor does everything a regularly called pastor does and also supports, but refrains from influencing, the selection of a new pastor.
