Peace Lutheran installing second pastor
For the first time in its history, Peace Lutheran Church in Hastings will have two full-time pastors to meet the growing needs of the congregation.
The church's current pastor, the Rev. Marcus J. Mackay, is being joined by Benjamin Siebert, whose ordination installation is 4 p.m. Sunday at the church at 906 N. California Ave.
Mackay said having a second pastor will allow the church to expand its college, youth and family ministries, as well as its Hispanic outreach. Siebert will share pastoral duties, but Mackay will take on a head pastor role and handle many of the administrative tasks.
"God's blessed us with a little bit of growth," Mackay said. "This will definitely be a historic first for Peace Lutheran."
Mackay, 39, is the fourth pastor in the church's 65-year-history, making Siebert, 33, the fifth.
