2020 Tool Kit Resources

Tool Kit logo

Tool Kit for Congregational Leaders is an annual gathering for congregational leaders, typically held in February. After a day of workshops and networking, leaders go back to their congregations equipped with new resources, ideas and connections!


Participants find the day valuable for sharing ideas, connecting with other congregations, gathering information, being inspired, listening to other perspectives, meeting new people, worshiping together and much more.


In 2020, the Saint Paul Area Synod offered a dozen workshops as part of Tool Kit on Feb. 22 at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in St. Paul. View our photo gallery!
