Musical Showcase on February 23
At the Synod Assembly in June we learned of Jubilee 2020, a fund to help pastors pay for their debt from seminary.
Pastor Heidi Johnston from Faith Lutheran in Quincy MA told her story of faith and need. She has $94,588 in student loans. This has had great negative impact on her family and her health. Her husband works in jobs for which he is not happy so that he is able to be with her in her passion for the ministry. They have two small children. They cannot buy a house because of this debt. She, like many others, gave up a good income to go to school to become a pastor.
We are asking the congregation to make a commitment to support the Jubilee 2020 fund of the New England Synod ELCA.
