Vicar Tyson Mastin

After almost three years without full-time pastoral care, the congregation of Christ the King Lutheran Church is excited to introduce Tyson Mastin as its Vicar.

Mastin began his one-year stay in 100 Mile House on Aug. 26, when he received a very warm welcome from the congregation in the form of a meet-the-congregation potluck luncheon.

In the Synod of Lutheran Church Canada, the third year of the four-year seminary program is a vicarage during which the seminarian gets to practise what he has learned so far on his path to becoming an ordained Pastor. He will return to Concordia Lutheran Theological Seminary in St. Catherine’s, Ont. next summer to complete the fourth year of study.

Some of his duties while serving at Christ the King will be to lead worship services, visit shut-ins and the hospitalized, as well as lead Bible studies. Church attendees have promised to keep him busy.

During the week, under Vicar Mastin’s tutelage, Christ the King is offering instruction in the Christian teachings of the Bible-based Lutheran Church.

Anyone wishing to learn more is welcome to contact the church for details by phoning 250-395-5159 or e-mailing ChristTheKingLutheran100m@gmail.com.
