Pastor Dave Wold—Augsburg’s pastor since 1983—retired at the end of the 2012-13 academic year, and, in its May meeting, the Augsburg College Board of Regents resolved that he would be named Campus Pastor Emeritus. Pastor Dave served faithfully and well for three decades, ministering in a variety of ways to individual members of the Augsburg community and the entire College. His service in organizing and leading daily chapel services, his accessibility to all with spiritual needs, his inimitable style as announcer for Auggie athletic events, his leadership of outreach programs such as the Augsburg High School Basketball League, his guidance of the annual Advent Vespers worship services, and his ubiquitous presence at College events—especially student events—all of this and so much more have been Pastor Dave’s remarkable contributions to Augsburg. A community-wide celebration of his ministry at Augsburg is being planned for fall.
