Give thanks for the work of the ELCA Domestic Mission unit, directors for evangelical mission, synod staff, coaches and consultants, and other partners assisting congregations as they renew themselves as communities of faith engaged in God’s mission―locally and globally.

I have been blessed through my years as an ordained pastor to attend our ELCA Churchwide Assembly twice. It was an experience that left me not only inspired, but absolutely humbled. To watch the larger church at work is both motivating and moving, As a denomination, we have a plethora of visionary and dedicated people doing God’s work.

Mission & Vision

Our mission
Together in Jesus Christ we are freed by grace to live faithfully, witness boldly and serve joyfully.

Our vision
A world experiencing the difference God’s grace and love in Christ makes for all people and creation.

Let us pray for our common mission in the world:
Draw your church together, O God, into one great company of disciples, together following our teacher Jesus Christ into every walk of life, together serving in Christ’s mission to the world, and together witnessing to your love wherever you will send us; for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
