Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Greetings to you in the name of our Resurrected Savior Jesus!

With a bitter sweet joy I share with you information that was made public today regarding Daniel J. Reichard. As you know, Dan has done an outstanding job in his role as the District Vice President of Lutheran Church Extension Fund. We have not been the only ones who have taken notice. The National Office of Lutheran Church Extension Fund was pleased to announce earlier today that Mr. Daniel Reichard has been selected to serve LCEF as the Regional Vice President – East Region, effective Monday, April 30, 2018. This is a wonderful opportunity for Dan, and we rejoice with Andrea and he as he begins a new step in his ministry career.

We will begin seeking a replacement for the DVP position with LCEF very soon. However, this is a great opportunity for some reorganization within our District staff to better serve, assist and encourage our congregations. More details will be forthcoming in the next month. For now, join me in thanking Dan for his service to our District and wishing him well as he begins this new venture. As God has provided for LCEF in sending Dan, I am confident that He is already been fashioning our future as well! Our trust remains in the One who reminds us, “Blessed are those who don’t see and yet believe!” Pray with me as we entrust the District staffing to the Almighty and most gracious Lord!

In His peace,

Rev. Gregory S. Walton, President

The Florida-Georgia District, LCMS
