Schulz accepts call as 'evangelist' for Lutheran Heritage Foundation

Synod Second Vice President Wallace Schulz has accepted a call to serve as
"evangelist" with the Lutheran Heritage Foundation (LHF).

Schulz formerly was Lutheran Hour radio speaker for the International
Lutheran Laymen's League.  His employment ended there in September, the
culmination of a dispute that involved Schulz's role in investigating
complaints brought against Atlantic District President David Benke.

The Lutheran Heritage Foundation, a recognized service organization of the
Missouri Synod, translates, publishes and distributes Lutheran books around
the world.  Although its offices are located in Macomb, Mich., Schulz will
remain in the St. Louis area, according to a foundation news release.

The news release says Schulz will conduct seminars, continue speaking and
preaching, and help develop new programs for disseminating God's Word.	It
adds that he will continue as executive editor of a mission magazine titled
"Good News."

"Rev. Schulz joins the LHF staff at a time when we are anticipating major
expansion in getting major confessional writings into even more corners of
the world and also developing a more effective method of LHF awareness in
the U.S. in order to sustain the mission in 75 regions of the world and in
over 80 languages," the news release quotes Rev. Robert Rahn, LHF's
executive director.

The release quotes Schulz as saying, "I look forward to working with an
organization that has the zeal of the Reformation, the compassion of the
early Christian church and the vision of worldwide mission."
