The future of this church relies on the leaders of tomorrow – and it takes all of us to identify, encourage and equip those being called to ministry, in all of its forms, including leadership for our mission in the world.
The harvest is, indeed, plentiful. We need more laborers, lay and rostered, to provide the ministry and leadership that will, by grace and in the power of the Spirit, assist the church in moving forward faithfully and energetically into God’s unfolding future.
”It’s not only the job of our seminaries and universities to identify and raise up leaders in the church. This is something that belongs to all of us.”Presiding Bishop Elizabeth A. Eaton
We are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God's grace. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person--questions, complexities and all. Join us as we do God's work in Christ's name for the life of the world.
