A New Model of Ministry

“Stay tuned.  Pray for us.  Check back in about a year,” say Pastors David Wirt and Heather Spencer of their ministry with the folks at St. Ansgar and Redeemer Lutheran Churches in London, Ontario.  Together, the two congregations and two pastors sculpt a new model of ministry, a work in progress that to their knowledge has never been tried before. The two calls, issued simultaneously by two distinct and separate congregations, had no precedent or model; just energetic vision, an adventurous spirit, and a willingness to confront old problems in a new and creative way.
