Word and Service Summit 2019
Where: Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary, Berkeley, CA
Who: Deacons, Synod Staff, Bishops, Seminary Faculty, and Churchwide Colleagues
In 2016 a unified Word and Service Roster (Deacon) was created through a vote of the Churchwide Assembly. This recent change is an opportunity for ministry leaders to come together for the sake of our public witness to ask, what does this mean?
We believe a ministry of Word & Service is a vital part of our Church’s call and witness in the world. How will we work together to ensure this new roster thrives for the sake of the world?
This will be a time of intentional conversation, in which together, we prayerfully find our common ground in ministry. We’ll acknowledge where we’ve been, where we are, where we are being led, and how to move forward into action to the glory of God for the sake of the world. Join us in worship, prayer and conversations.
Come and experience what it means to be church, better together!
