MEET YOUR NEXT VICAR AND HIS BRIDE

Briton & Jade Nelson

A MESSAGE FROM BRITON

Greetings in our risen Lord Jesus!

I am delighted to accept my vicarage assignment to Messiah Lutheran Church - Clio, Michigan. Call Day was an exciting time for everyone here at the seminary. The vicarage assignment service was beautiful and had a great message for us about using our vicarage to serve and love God’s Church. I am very excited to serve as Messiah’s next vicar and look forward to meeting everyone soon! A number of students and faculty have made comments to me that Messiah is a great congregation and an excellent place to learn and grow.

I’d like to briefly introduce my family. My name is Briton Nelson. I was raised in Reedsburg, Wisconsin where I graduated from high school in 2015. I went to Wartburg College in Iowa and graduated in 2019 before coming to Concordia Seminary. My beautiful wife, Jade, and I were married last June in my hometown. Only 12 people were allowed to attend the service because of Covid restrictions. However, we loved that we got to spend more time with family as a result afterwards.

Jade grew up in Marion, Iowa and graduated last year from the University of Northern Iowa. She is currently finishing up her first year of teaching 5th grade math at a middle school here in St. Louis. She was hoping to receive a vicarage in Michigan and was very excited when she heard we were going to Clio. She can’t wait to meet everyone. In our free time, we enjoy playing games, going hiking, watching sports (Go Packers!), and trying out new restaurants. We heard that Messiah has a softball league and we’re both excited to play!

I pray that the ministry at Messiah Lutheran would continue to bring Christ into the lives of God’s people and that God might bless the rest of Adam’s vicarage and our upcoming year as well. In the name of Jesus, Amen!

We’ll see you soon!

In Christ,

Briton and Jade Nelson
