The Rev. Fred Lund, Sabbatical Supply Minister
June 23, 2014
At Pilgrim Congregational Church, clergy leadership are eligible for limited sabbatical time after each six years of service. This leave is granted to allow more extended time with family, relaxation, and the pursue of interests that are often set aside in order to serve a congregation. Pilgrim’s minister, Charlotte Frantz will be on sabbatical this summer, June 26-August 13.
The Rev. Fred Lund will serve Pilgrim in her absence. He will conduct worship services and will respond to pastoral emergencies.
Fred served Eastridge Community Church here in Duluth from 1980 until his retirement a few years ago. Prior to that he served a congregation in south St. Paul and did mission work in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Community service has always been important to Fred. He was an active volunteer with CHUM and served as its Treasurer for many years. In his retirement, Fred continues to serve not-for-profits dedicated to creating low income housing and advocating on behalf of low income households.
Fred studied at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota, majoring in history and education. He earned his M. Div at Bethel Theological Seminary and later earned a Doctorate degree in Church Renewal and Development at McCormick Seminary.
