There are a variety of vocational choices in the ELCA. We have pastors, but we also have accountants, chaplains, youth workers, musicians, evangelists, nurses, office managers, counselors, and caregivers. We are a church that believes God is calling us into the world — together. The ELCA has many needs to fill as we carry out our mission to share God’s boundless love with the world.
So how do you know if you should become a leader in the ELCA?
Do you have a sense of wonder?
We need aware, caring, courageous people leading the church in the 21st century. We need passionate, joy-filled and adventurous people who want to bring healing and hope to other people in this broken world.
