New Board Members Elected at Concordia

November 20, 2012

Like many organizations that have been around for well over a century, tradition and history means a lot at Concordia Lutheran Ministries. One part of that tradition and history is our annual meeting.

Held every year on the second Sunday of November, delegates from local and regional Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) congregations gather to hear the state of the organization and elect new board members.

Concordia's governing body is composed of 18 board members, representing 35 LCMS congregations in the area. At this year's meeting on Nov. 11 (pictures below), six new directors were elected to serve a three-year term. Rev. Jack Hartman, director of chaplaincy at Concordia, installed the newly elected members:

Rande Casaday resident of McMurray, member at Peace Lutheran Church, McMurray, First Vice President of Investments and Branch Manager at Stifel Nicolaus

Peter Fisher resident of Castle Shannon, member at Zion Lutheran Church, Bridgeville, retired engineer

Tom Kibel resident of Murrysville, member at Calvary Lutheran Church, Murrysville, CPA with PPL based in Allentown, PA

Russell Lucas resident of McCandless Twp., member at First Trinity Lutheran Church, Oakland, attorney in private practice for Maiello, Brungo & Maiello, LLP

Ruth Redenbaugh resident of Shaler Twp., member at St. John Lutheran Church, Millvale, retired nursing administrator

Rev. Michael Scheer resident of Slippery Rock, pastor at All Saints Lutheran Church, Slippery Rock.

Of the 35 possible congregations, 24 churches were represented and 52 delegates were in attendance at the meeting, in addition to current board members and staff leadership.

Special recognition was given to outgoing board members Rev. Barry Keurulainen, Cabot resident and senior pastor of St. Luke Lutheran Church in Cabot; Terry Miller, Shaler Twp. resident and chairman of the congregation at Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in the Lawrenceville section of Pittsburgh; and Rev. Eugene Reddel, Gibsonia resident and chaplain for the Veterans Administration Hospital System who will finish their terms on the board at the end of 2012.
