Good Shepherd In The World

Nelson FamilyRecently Pastor Paul and Genevieve (Gena) Nelson received and accepted the call to serve on behalf of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) in Indonesia, based in Medan. Pastor Nelson and his family served Emanuel Lutheran Church, Santa Barbara for 10 ½ years. In this new role, Pastor Paul works closely with the Indonesian Christian Lutheran Church and helps train and mentor local pastors and lay leaders.

Pastor Nelson and family need fellow believers to partner with them in this new role.
