Links for Ministry Work

https://elca.org/Our-Work/Leadership - Leaders in the church are equipped to live and serve in just about every setting and context — wherever God is at work — in congregations, ethnically and culturally diverse communities, organizations and institutions, schools, special ministries, military chaplaincies, hospitals and beyond. Wherever our leaders are serving, they are busy equipping and encouraging people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to live by the faith that comes from the good news of Jesus Christ and sets us free to discover and boldly participate in what God is up to in the world.  Whether you are an existing leader in the ELCA or someone who is wondering what God is calling you to, we are here to help and support you.
 
https://elca.org/Our-Work/Publicly-Engaged-Church - There is no aspect of life in which God is not active, no place where God is not present. And this is exactly where we are called to participate in God’s work, in the thick of life, embracing individuals, families and communities that are hungry for hope and healing, justice and peace, advocates and partners. Our faith and our call to boldly serve and love our neighbor take us into some interesting and challenging aspects of life: advocacy, corporate social responsibility, racial justice, science and ethics, peacemaking, justice for women, social issues, and community organizing. We are drawn into every corner of life, society and its institutions to bring the good news of Jesus Christ and to work for lasting, positive change that upholds human dignity. You have a place in the ELCA and an important role in God’s work in the world — find ways here to get connected to a community of faith and the work of our publicly engaged church.
