2021 Synod Assembly – Planting Hope

During the 2021 Synod Assembly, the Saint Paul Area Synod launched a multi-year initiative called "The Planting Hope" campaign. This effort calls us to stretch in new ways as a synod as we seek to plant hope for others. The four areas of the campaign are:

    • invite neighbors into life in Christ
    • renew the congregations of the synod
    • raise up the next generation of leaders
    • invest in a transformative project on St. Paul's East Side with other community partners


We invite you to watch the introductory video about the campaign and read the prospectus:



During the Synod Assembly, the Rev. Marty Ericson provided an overview of the Planting Hope campaign timeline for congregational involvement:
