Wellington Morris is excited to head the work at Christ Lutheran Church in Fort Worth, TX where the lead Pastor is Rev. Travis Pittock and his wife Stephanie is the DCE. Wellington has begun the ministry activities to lay the groundwork for a multi-cultural second service focusing on the African and African-American demographic. In addition to the church plant, the after-school program ASAP (After School Achievement) Kids will minister to the surrounding apartment communities as an evangelism effort combined with the practical need for the enrichment of the students.
As told by Wellington “After I felt the call of God to ministry and enrolled in the African Bible College, an interdenominational school in Liberia, I began to serve as Sunday school teacher and assistant pastor of Christ the King Lutheran Church in Liberia. Also while in exile in the Ivory Coast, seeking refuge as a result of the civil war in Liberia, I planted an interdenominational church that reached out to both Liberians and Ivorians.
I served as the Pastor of a newly planted church, Ministry coordinator of the Association of Evangelicals of Liberia (AEL), and Campus Pastor and instructor at the Liberia Baptist Theological Seminary, Liberia West Africa.
It never crossed my mind, as I was growing up in St. Mark Lutheran Church, Liberia that one day I would be pursuing the colloquy process of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. I now believed that the Lord has been preparing me for this ministerial transition throughout the years.
I see the process of my colloquy as “coming back home”. I am so elated that the Lord is finally bringing me back to where I started my Christian experience. Just recently, my wife who arrived the first week in March from Liberia, and I had our interview with the Texas District Colloquial interview committee.
We are looking forward with excitement to sit in the final interview with the president’s colloquy committee In Missouri. All I can say about my colloquy process and the reunion with my wife is that the Lord is faithful and good, and worthy to be praised and glorify for his grace and favor upon me and my family!
On Sunday, March 7th, 2021 Willette Morris joined me for the first time after one and a half years of being separated due to coming to the United States as a religious worker. We have come full circle and are very grateful.”
Pastor Travis Pittock and his wife welcomed the Mosaic Worship service to launch in the Spring of 2021.
