Dear Mount Olivet Friends –

THANK YOU First, thank you for your wonderful welcome to me and for your daily remembrance of Pastor Hogenson in your prayers and the notes posted to him on CaringBridge. ­at makes a tremendous difference for Pastor, Ruth, and their family.

PASTOR HOGENSON UPDATE Pastor Hogenson continues treatment for his malignant brain tumor and is recovering at his home. We meet weekly for conversation. I am humbled by his attitude every time we are together. He is teaching us how to face adversity. Our relationship has grown into a special friendship. We give each other support and counsel. I am grateful for him. Businesses and other organizations develop plans for every eventuality. Every church (especially one of our size) should have a staff contingency plan that is updated annually. Our leadership recognizes the need for this. Pastor Hogenson was in the process of developing such a plan before he was diagnosed. As a continuation of that e‑ort, we will be engaging in exercises so that we have guidance for transition for all key leaders.

CAPITAL CAMPAIGN UPDATE Meanwhile, at our West Campus, a process has been put in place that will review the existing capital improvement plans to ensure that what we build meets the current and future needs of our members. It has been a few years since the plan was originally presented and this is a prudent step before breaking ground. Once the input has been compiled, a review committee consisting of members and leaders will give guidance as to next steps and timing. If you have interest or desire to grow worship and programs at West, we welcome your participation. Pastor Eric Youngdahl and Pastor Drew Bakken will facilitate this process. ­They will conclude their work by the end of March. Following the review, we will finalize the investment strategy and continue fundraising. When sufficient funds are on hand and pledges secure, we will break ground. We trust that the excitement and commitment will grow during this time of strategic review. ­e third component of the capital campaign – the James Avenue addition at the Minneapolis Campus – has $1 million in the bank designated with the promise of more to come to enable that project. Much to do and be grateful for as we continue to Build on a Strong Foundation – with Christ as Our Rock! This is an exciting time in the life and growth of our church. I continue to be impressed by the strong leadership of our staff and members. With 265 new members welcomed into membership just a few weeks ago, Mount Olivet continues to grow as a community of faith, where Christ is Lord and we are servants by His grace.
