Lutherans Concerned has hired Tim Feiertag as Grassroots Organizing and Training Coordinator at the LC/NA headquarters in St. Paul, Minnesota. Tim will take up his position as of February 15, working throughout LC/NA.
Tim is a 2009 Mdiv. Graduate of Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary, and a graduate of Valparaiso University with a degree in Social Work. Tim has more than a dozen years experience helping people and groups to find solutions in direct service, supervisory, pastoral and administrative support positions he has held. He comes to LC/NA and St. Paul from his employ in Kansas City with the Missouri Children’s Division as a case worker for abused and neglected children and their families.
Tim has a long history of involvement in Lutherans Concerned in leadership, training, and organizing at the local, regional and national level. Beginning in the early 1990s, Tim started as the co-chair of the Kansas City/Lawrence Chapter. He joined the national board of directors of LC/NA in 1995 as the Regional Director for the Central Region. In 1998, he was elected co-chair of LC/NA, a position he held until 2002. Across time he has participated in and conducted various trainings, from I-Wheel to RIC and Building an Inclusive Church.
Emily Eastwood, Executive Director, said, “I am so very pleased that Tim has accepted our invitation to join the staff of LC/NA. He has demonstrated his commitment to our organization through many years of service in a number of different volunteer positions. His easy smile, pastoral presence, quirky humor, and abiding faith will bring welcome additions to our ministry. We confirm his call from God and his passion for our reconciling programs. We thank him for his willingness to relocate to St. Paul to take this position.”
Tim said, “As a gay man, I have been blessed by the welcome I received in my home congregation and in my seminary, both of which are Reconciling In Christ organizations. I am excited to work through LC/NA in helping others to broaden and deepen our Christian vocations of hospitality and reconciliation.”
After February 15, Tim can be reached by phone (651-665-0861) or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We ask you all to join us in welcoming Tim to our staff as he takes on the exciting and important work that lies before him.
