Two new deans

The pastor and his wife have been active in gutenstetten and reinhardshofen in central franconia since 2005. In addition to their work in the church community, both have proven scientific qualifications.

Ulrike schorn was a vicar in wurzburg; before that she completed her doctorate in old testament in erlangen. After her vicariate she was assistant for old testament and biblical archaology in mainz for six years.

Markus muller wrote his doctoral thesis in new testament in erlangen, where he was habilitated before his vicariate in heroldsberg in 2002 and since then teaches as a private lecturer.

At her current place of work, ulrike schorn is a senior member of the parish chapter and the deanery’s representative for emergency pastoral care. She is also the theological advisor to the "church in franconia" museum in bad windsheim. Markus muller is the church district of nurnberg’s commissioner for lectors and pastors and has also been a pastor in the church community of munchsteinach since september 2016. Both spouses are also mentors in the "further training in the first years of office" active. The two 55-year-olds have an 18-year-old son.

Regional bishop dorothea greiner believes the two are up to the task: "anyone who thinks that scientifically highly qualified people find it difficult to express themselves simply will find in the two of them the shining counterexample. Their love for the countryside and the people certainly also contributes to the fact that they find direct contact with people. Her theological education will bring joy to the congregations in the deanery district through profound preaching and the ability to lead spiritually."

Ulrike schorn and markus muller said after the election: "we thank you for your trust and look forward to a good cooperation in the christuskirche in kronach and in the diverse church landscape in the deanery kronach-ludwigsstadt". Trusting in god’s promise ‘I will bless you and you shall be a blessing’, we begin our new task of accompanying the people here."

The deanery district of kronach-ludwigsstadt was formed in 2010 from the two frankenwald deaneries of kronach and ludwigsstadt. It is home to some 19,000 protestants in 23 parishes.
