“See, I am making all things new.” – Rev. 21:5b

Dear Members and Patrons of Jubilee Collective,

Peter and I are working with Joey Ager, Director of Evangelical Mission for the Southwest Washington Synod, to determine options for new pastoral leadership to continue the critical work of Jubilee Collective. Joey has interviewed members of Jubilee’s launch team to understand the collective’s needs and opportunities. We are now in the early stage of conversations with a potential candidate.

We thank you for hanging in there with us during this period of pause as we collect information, assess the resources, and prepare to move forward. We, along with the leadership at Messiah, are committed to the beautiful ideals and values upon which Jubilee was founded, and we are so grateful that you have found your way to this collective.

We hope to have more updates to share in the coming weeks. Until that time, we ask for your continued prayers for this process. We believe in a God of resurrection that always surprises us with new life around every corner.

Peace, Pastors Kathy & Peter Braafladt, Co-Lead Pastors
