Roger N. Haugen

Member of Zion Lutheran Church, North Battleford SK;

Past Experiences or Positions:

Synod Council-6 years.; Chair of Synod Strategic Planning Committee.; Constitutional Review Committee-Synod.; Involvement in Neighbourhood Development Organization.

Strengths and Gifts:

Ability to think strategically and to look for the bigger picture as we move into a rapidly changing future.; Background in Christian education.; Family Ministry Resource Person for the Sask. Synod.

Issues of Particular Interest:

I believe the church is at a significant position to be influential in shaping social policy and delivering social programs to our communities.; A Lutheran understanding of grace and forgiveness is what our society craves if we can articulate in ways our culture can understand.

Concerns and Hopes for the Future of the ELCIC

The ELCIC, on a national level, must find structure and purpose that are faithful as well as being sustainable and appropriate to needs.; We need to be more concerned with living our faith outside of the walls of our churches.
