This is a time of transition in synod leadership and staffing as Bishop Jon Anderson accepts a new call to Luther Seminary and Pr. Dee Pederson transitions as Director for Evangelical Mission to Bishop-elect. We are happy now to post the position description for the next Director for Evangelical Mission (D.E.M.).
The D.E.M. is an ELCA churchwide staff member, deployed in the synod, serving as part of the synod’s pastoral staff and supervised day-to-day by the synod bishop. This is a great call. The D.E.M. is part of the creative and energetic network of 65 D.E.M.s from across the ELCA, who receive inspiration and resourcing because we are church together. We are seeking a leader who will walk with our congregations to strengthen their vitality as they serve God’s mission in a greatly-changed and changing context.
