With the election of our own District President, Herbert Mueller, to the First Vice-Presidency of Synod, Pastor Timothy Scharr will assume the presidency of our District. President Mueller said on more than one occasion that he could accept serving at the Synodical level with peace, knowing that his beloved Southern Illinois District would be in good hands. He is absolutely correct. I am delighted to welcome Pastor Timothy Scharr as our new president, our bishop in Christ. May the Lord richly bless his service to the people of this district - and the time of transition (both at Synodical and District levels)!
P.S. I think Pr. Scharr is the tallest president SID has ever had!
