As a Rostered Minister in the ELCA, you are invited to join colleagues under the theme of "Rekindle the gift within you"
(2 Timothy 1:6).

Let this gathering be an opportunity for you to remember, reclaim, rekindle and revive yourself. Gathering with colleagues from across the church for fellowship, renewal, continuing education, worship, bible study and refreshment for your spirit.

All rostered ministers are invited (active in call, on leave from call, awaiting call, retired).

Each day will begin in worship as we center ourselves around our theme. Each morning, we will offer bible studies and keynote speakers. The afternoon hours will offer a variety of individual options from activity in the Interaction Center to workshops and caucus times. Evening activities will include a presiding bishop’s reception with live music on Monday, a Beer and Hymns Fundraiser concert on Tuesday, and a banquet to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the ordination of women on Wednesday.
