WHEREAS, Pastor Rolf Nestingen and Pastor David Irgens have done nothing to warrant any disciplinary action as stated in the ELCA Constitution (20.21.01,); therefore


BE IT RESOLVED, that Grace Lutheran Church Council affirms its full support of Pastor Rolf Nestingen and Pastor David Irgens as they implement their call and fulfill their responsibilities; and
