As the Lutheran Church Charities (LCC) K-9 Ministry continues to grow, we are pleased to announce the addition of Rev. James Kirschenmann, Assistant to the Director of K-9 Ministries reporting to Richard Martin, Director, K-9 Ministries.
Rev. Kirschenmann previously worked at LCC before entering the seminary program in St. Louis, Missouri. He was involved in the beginning of the LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry when it launched in 2008 with four comfort dogs. His other role included IT support.
He brings to LCC a business background and a heart to serve! Prior to joining LCC, Rev. Kirschenmann served as pastor in an ethnically diverse area of St Louis.
"In this transition, I find assurance in knowing that God has a plan, and I am 'straining toward the goal' in following His lead. We are excited to learn what God will reveal in this next step of our journey," shared Rev. Kirschenmann.
We welcome Rev. Kirschenmann and his wife Kathie as we continue to grow and carry out our mission to share the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to those suffering and in need.
