Carlton Jacobson and Will Rose are the latest members to join the Lutheran Alliance for Faith, Science and Technology’s Steering Committee.
Since October 1991, the Alliance has been an Independent Lutheran Organization recognized by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) with liaison through the Theological Discernment Team in the Office of the Presiding Bishop.
The now 12-member strong group oversees a number of key projects related to faith and science including this website, youth outreach via the ELCA Youth Gathering and other ecumenical projects over the years.
Jacobson is currently studying to become an ordained ELCA minister at the United Lutheran Seminary in Gettysburg. Previously he spent about a decade designing software and configuring hardware. A native of western Pennsylvania, Jacobsen’s home congregation is Trinity Lutheran Church in Somerset.
Rose is pastor at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church and Lutheran Campus Ministry in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. While at Holy Trinity, he has worked with university students and professors in engaging questions around faith and science. In 2016, the congregation receives a two-year STEAM (Science and Theology for Emerging Adult Ministries) grant from Fuller Seminary.
