As staff in the Office of the Bishop have sought to equip and support leaders and congregations, they have coordinated many synod-sponsored events. Some of these include Tool Kit for Congregational Leaders, Ministerium, and Bishop's Theological Conference. Our synod also gathers annually for conference assemblies and synod assembly.


All events hosted by the synod, plus more happening throughout our congregations and larger church-body, can be found on the calendar page. If your congregation, ministry setting, or organization is sponsoring an event that has synod-wide appeal, email the full details to to be featured in our calendar.
