+Bishop Jon V. Anderson
Here is the full job description for our next Director for Evangelical Mission. This is an ELCA churchwide position under the day-to-day supervision of the synod bishop. The staff member is nested in the synod staff and the midst of the synod where they serve.
No one can replace Larry. Let’s be clear about that. We are very thankful for the service of Pr. Larry Strenge in the last decade of our synod’s life. We will recognize his service at our coming synod assembly.
The goal is not to replace our last DEM. Our goal is to find our next DEM who will come with different gifts, experiences, and passions. Our synod is continually moving, our culture changing, and we need a person to serve the mission field that is and will be coming.
It is a great calling. We are seeking the person who can move forward the life of our congregations and our leaders. We are looking for someone to equip all the baptized and be a shepherd as we seek to embrace God’s mission.
Notice: Rostered ministers and lay leaders of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America who apply for a position in the churchwide organization must have completed Rostered Minister Profile papers on file. Please add firstname.lastname@example.org as a safe site to your email account.
