Celebrating 50 Years of Ordination

23:19 22 May in Synod Assembly

By Rev. Gina Metze

Former South Carolina Synod Bishop David Donges and Pastor Clifford Riis were honored at the opening session of the 2017 SC Synod on Sunday evening. Pastor Riis was not able to be present. Accepting his 50th ordination anniversary certificate, Bishop Donges, accompanied by his wife, Carolyn, stated it would hang right next to the 20th and 40th certificates in their home. David also declared to Carolyn that being married for 48 years is “not nearly long enough.”
