Rostered Ministers' Annual Ministry Report
One of the priorities in our work as a synod is staying in close relationship with the rostered ministers who serve our church. The Annual Ministry Report, received by Bishop Lull, allows us to check-in on your discernment, your call, and anything that the synod might hold in prayer for you. It also keeps us updated on practical information, such as current contact information, anniversaries, etc.
Below you will find links to the 2020 Rostered Minister Annual Report Forms. This year, reports for pastors and deacons have been combined, bringing the number of form types to just four. Please open the form that best describes your status over the past year. Save the form to your computer. Open the saved form and fill it out. Be sure to save your changes before sending it to Bishop Lull. To use the fillable form, you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader. Please note that the questions have a 250 word limit when filled out electronically.

Once you have completed your report, attach it in an email to Bishop Lull at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively you may print the report and mail it to the synod office (105 University Avenue West, St. Paul, MN 55103). If a face-to-face conversation would be helpful with Bishop Lull or one of the Assistants to the Bishop, contact Anna Marsh at email@example.com or 651.224.4313 and she will communicate with you regarding a time to meet.
Rostered ministers, congregations, and church-related organizations will find mobility forms that have been “designed and crafted to work together with a churchwide mobility database that will store the forms.” The Rostered Minister Profile (RMP) for pastors and deacons and the Ministry Site Profile (MSP) for congregations may be accessed on the ELCA website at www.elca.org/call-process.
