Pastor Edwin Vargas will be ordained as an Elder in The United Methodist Church on Sunday, June 12 during the 2022 session of the Wisconsin Annual Conference. His accomplishment will accompany becoming a clergy member in full connection with the Wisconsin Conference.
The occasion is the culmination of a two-decades-long journey for Pastor Edwin. He still needed to finish college when he was first licensed to serve as a Part-Time Local Pastor, serving three congregations during that period. Following the completion of his seminary education at the University of Dubuque in 2014 he came to Lake Mills as a Full-Time Local Pastor, then subsequently was commissioned as a Provisional Elder. We celebrate with him his upcoming ordination following that probationary period.
The service will be at 4:00 pm on June 12 at the KI Convention Center, 333 Main Street, Green Bay, Wisconsin 54301. At this time, masking will be required for those attending the service.
The service will also be live-streamed. The link will be on the www.wisconsinumc.org website.
Pastor Seongmin Kim, who will be serving Lake Mills UMC beginning in July, is also part of this year’s class of ordinands.
You are invited to participate, either in person or online, in this most meaningful worship service in the life of every ordained clergy. It is a way you can show support and celebration of Pastor Edwin’s ministry.
