Glocal Events

Upcoming Glocal Mission Gatherings

ELCA Glocal Mission Gatherings equip us for God's work in global and local realities, as well as their "glocal" intersections. At these events, participants consider the questions "What is mission?" and "Who is the neighbor?" as they relate to our world of many faiths and religions.
