Propelled by a commitment to Lutheran traditions and to being a community of faith that is always forming and being renewed, the ELCA’s presiding bishop, Church Council and Conference of Bishops initiated Called Forward Together in Christ in late 2015. The process sought to engage the ELCA in conversation about future directions so that the Church Council might reach decisions that help this church journey faithfully and effectively together in the years ahead.
ELCA Strategic Direction 2025 goals and priority areas for the ELCA as a whole church. These are based in a shared trust and hope that the future is in God’s hands. And they express what this church has collectively said is important into the future.
