CLS received an email from Rev. Dr. James Gimbel this afternoon, indicating that he would be accepting the Call to be the next President of CLS. In his words, "I have completed deliberating on the Call, and after serious conversations, prayer, and fasting, I strongly believe that God is leading me to accept the call you have extended for me to serve Concordia Lu theran Seminary as President. I will be sending a more formal acceptance letter shortly, along with the acceptance portion of the call document. Thank you for your conversations and prayerful support for me and my family in this process, and I look forward to further partnership in the Gospel." It goes without saying that all of us at CLS are very excited to hear this news, and we look forward to working with Dr. Gimbel through his transition and for many years to come!
