Ministry Transition Update

main image

The transition team has received and analyzed the surveys which were distributed in November and December.

We have discovered that the new pastor must possess expected pastoral traits of preaching and worship, building community, and youth/family ministry, plus good humor and a commitment to the
Lutheran Church. Most importantly, two factors stood out.

The pastor must be bilingual in Spanish and English. Also there is a strong will to receive and nurture our own Elena Enriquez in the role of pastor.

While that end may take some time we will work with the synod to find a way forward to make that happen and also to provide new staff to relieve the workload on our present staff.

The type of new staff we will seek will depend on synod input and support.

City Council vote paves way for affordable housing project

After months of dealing with San Diego city regulations over parking, a recent vote may soon pave the way for our congregation’s affordable housing project.

The San Diego City Council unanimously approved a measure changing the city’s Land Development Code to reduce the parking requirements for churches and other non-profits who are considering building affordable housing on their properties.

This means the congregation is now well within the requirement for parking spaces, and the construction of affordable housing units would not affect this requirement.

We are, however, still a long way out from any major decision, and the congregation will have a say in how we move forward.

In the meantime, check out the report from KUSI News.

San Diego Entertainer Magazine and KPBS also reported on the change in Land Development Code by the City Council.
