Pastor Priestap has been placed on the CLC Clergy roster after fulfilling colloquy requirements in connection with the synod’s General Pastoral Conference at Immanuel Lutheran College, Eau Claire, Wisconsin, in June, 2013.
The new CLC pastor has served his entire pastoral ministry north of the border. He is currently serving Resurrection Evangelical Lutheran Church, Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Born July 27, 1952, he has B.A. and Master of Divinity degrees. “Doug” (as he prefers) and wife Doris have three daughters and one granddaughter, with another grandchild expected in September, 2013.
Together with its pastor, Resurrection Lutheran belongs to the synod’s Pacific Coast District. “I much appreciate the Scriptural, confessional stance of the CLC,” comments the most recent addition to the CLC ministerium.
