ILC Dorm Supervisors: After serving as dorm supervisors, both Paul and Courtney Agenten plan on resigning at the end of this academic year. We thank them both for their faithful service to the Lord and for being such positive role models to our dorm students. ILC is accepting applicants for these two positions to begin the 2024-25 year, an adult male for the boys’ dorm and an adult female for the girls’ dorm. These roles are vital to our campus, given how they provide spiritual counsel and a fatherly or motherly role to those students who are living away from home. Those who are CLC members in good standing and are able and willing to fill this position may contact ILC President Daniel Schierenbeck ( for more information about the responsibilities and compensation for this position. An application is available online at > Forms and Applications > ILC Employment Application. Review of applications begins April 1.

Volunteers Needed at ILC. With Professor Mark Kranz retiring and moving out at the end of the school year and, Lord willing, our new professor moving in this summer, ILC is planning to do a considerable amount of renovation in a short amount of time at 505 Ingram Drive. To facilitate these renovations, we would especially welcome volunteers with skills in the following areas: general carpentry, wall framing, window installation, trim work, concrete cutting, flooring installation, electrical, and plumbing. Help with demo, clean up, and painting would also be welcome. We would like to complete much of the work from June 1 to July 1. If you are able to help, please contact Paul Heinze ( or 715-456-7194) before April 15. After that date, we will need to begin hiring local contractors to complete tasks that we are not able to do on our own. Thank you for considering using your time and God-given talents in this work for our synod.

—Professor Daniel Schierenbeck, President, Immanuel Lutheran College

Call for Nominations: Nominations to fill synodical offices can be made by CLC pastors, professors, male teachers, and voting members of CLC congregations any time through March 31, 2024. Nomination forms are available on our website.
