A Visit to Kitimat

Prof. Jonathan Kraemer, Director of Vicarage, recently (the weekend of Feb. 9-10) visited Vicar Clint Magnus and family.  Vicar Clint was assigned as the vicar of Redeemer Lutheran Church in Kitimat, B.C.  but has also conducted Bible studies and services in nearby Terrace.  Pastor Alan Visser of Zion Lutheran Church in Prince George is serving as Vicar Clint’s vicarage supervisor.  Prof. Kraemer reports that Joyce and Clint, as well as children Hillary and Marshall have enjoyed their time in Kitimat and give thanks to God for all the experiences they have had there.  Vicarage, normally the third year of the four year M.Div. program, is a year of immersion in the practical aspects of ministry in a congregation of Lutheran Church-Canada under the mentorship of an experienced Pastor.  The Director of Vicarage normally visits the vicars during the year to receive evaluation from the supervising pastor and vicar on the vicar’s progress, to express support for the vicar’s wife and family, and to thank the vicarage congregation for their partnership in the important task of forming “Servants for Jesus’ Sake.”
