Pastor Dr. Christian Ceconi of the Martin Luther Lutheran Church, Toronto, March 2019We invite you to a townhall meeting on Sunday, October 6, 2019 after the German service to ask any questions you may have….. because

With mixed feelings I have the duty to inform you that Pastor Ceconi will follow a new call as director of the Citymission Berlin.

On the recommendations of the bishop elect of the Evangelical Church in Berlin, Brandenburg and Silesian Upper Lusatia, Dr. Christian Stäblein, the Board of the Berlin Citymission Berlin has offered our pastor this position.

Without the preparatory time at Martin Luther Church and the Eastern Synod, says Pastor Ceconi, this next assignment would have been impossible. What was learned in regards to the future orientation and missional development in churches, will now be implemented and applied. After careful discernment Pastor Ceconi will follow this call and will begin his new endeavor on April 1, 2020 (no, this is not an April fools joke).

Even though our congregation and I myself had wished for many more years of working with Pastor Ceconi, I am delighted about this wonderful opportunity and ask all of you to pray for Pastor Ceconi and his family to help and prepare them in following God’s call.

During his remaining six months, we will make arrangements for transitioning to ensure that the lively work of our congregation will continue seamlessly. Additionally we will ensure that proper pastoral coverage will be in place. Please support the council with your ideas, your enthusiasm and prayers.

Church Council President
