Congregation Leadership Data
Please update your congregation leadership data annually. The synod office uses this information for the call process, giving statements, and getting helpful resources to the correct person.
The Worship Supply list include Ministers of the Word and Ministers on Word & Sacrament who are interested in doing supply preaching in the SW MN Synod.
Guidelines for Worship Supply
For Sunday mornings and midweek services, the congregation or parish shall compensate the supply pastor or worship leader $150 for the first worship service, plus $50 for each additional worship service on the same day. Auto reimbursement shall be at the current IRS standard mileage rate.
ELCA Congregation Report Forms A & C
Forms A and C are annual forms that are to be filled out by each congregation. This information is submitted to the ELCA to help provide crucial data that assist in assessing the success of existing programs and in preparation of new resources. This data is also shared on your congregation’s full trend report on the ELCA’s website. (To view a congregation’s trend report on the ELCA website, click Find a Congregation and type in the zip code, click on the congregation name.)
To fill out these forms you must have your congregation ID number and password. Your congregation will receive a packet in the mail during the second week of January 2024 from churchwide that includes the password. Passwords change from year to year.
Starting Jan. 2024 congregations can file electronically. Click here for more information.
