Bishop Layne appointed to position

GREENSBURG – Archbishop Samuel Guido of Neffs, Pennsylvania, recently announced the appointment of Bishop Michael Layne to the Randy G. Wagoner Memorial Chair as special counsel to the Bishops of the Lutheran Orthodox Church.

His new position will include providing sound and Scriptural counsel.

Randy G. Wagoner was one of the Founders of The Lutheran Orthodox Church. He served admirably until his untimely and unexpected passing in April of 2014.

During his time as Executive Vice President, he humbly and quietly went about the business of serving The Lord, caring for his family, and acting as Chief Spiritual Counselor to the Bishops of The Lutheran Orthodox Church. His Biblical counsel, his wit, humor and wisdom were most welcome and at times most definitely needed. He is a man of God who will truly be missed and whose influence on the Lutheran Orthodox Church will be felt for all time.

We felt it fitting and appropriate to remember this wonderful, humble man of God by keeping his contributions to the LOC alive in memory by creating The Randy G. Wagoner Memorial Chair. The person who holds this seat is a person who best exemplifies the Christian attributes of our friend Randy and who can continue his legacy of offering sound and Scriptural counsel to the Bishops and members of the LOC when they need guidance in matters of faith, and encouragement. It is our honor to seat The Most Reverend Michael Layne as first

holder of The Randy G Wagoner memorial Chair, to serve as Chief Spiritual Counselor to the Bishops of The LOC.

Layne serves as Bishop of the Diocese of East Indiana and is a religion columnist for the Greensburg Daily News.
