The Future of Rostered Ministry

June 20, 2023 - June 28, 2023

  • Held over Zoom June 20, 22, 26 & 28

In March 2022, a diverse group was appointed to examine and improve the candidacy process that equips rostered ministers for service in the ELCA. This team is the Candidacy Leadership Development Working Group. In the last year it has spent time hosting virtual and in-person listening sessions to learn the needs of our church and surveying those excluded by the current candidacy process. The working group is now prioritizing feedback from the church at large. All members of the ELCA are invited to hearings at which the working group will share its findings. There will also be an opportunity for response. More details will be shared at the hearings; you can find an executive summary of the team’s work here.

The hearings will be hosted via Zoom. Mark your calendars for one of the following (all are central time zone):

  • June 20, 6 p.m.
  • June 22, 12 p.m.
  • June 26, 1 p.m.
  • June 28, 9 p.m.
