A message from Pastor Richard Bruesehoff, ELCA Coordinator for Missional Leadership Schools:
“I do have a sense that, viewed from the perspective of the ELCA Churchwide Office, LACE is becoming the trusted voice in Christian education and faith formation! ….. There simply is no room–and no need–for centralized structures that give directives about education in congregations! What we need are the thousands of people who are equipped and energized as Christian education/faith formation leaders in their congregations! That is LACE!!!””
