St. John’s voters met Monday night, July 24th to consider the latest call list as offered by District President Joel Zank. After much discussion, a unanimous ballot was cast for Rev. Peter Hagen of Fairmont, MN. Pastor Hagen, born in Green Bay, attended Fox Valley Lutheran High School in Appleton. Pastor Hagen vicared in Canada, where he met his wife Desiree. The couple served St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Ontario until immigration back to the states became a possibility. The Hagens were then assigned to Shepherd of the Lakes Lutheran Church in Fairmont, where Pastor Hagen has served four years. The couple have been blessed with two young sons. Please keep this young family, the congregation they serve and the ministry of the church at large in your prayers!
