TBA Fall 2013
Fall is in the air! There’s something familiar, yet always new. Conferences will gather to nominate and elect people who will "be the church" in future gatherings. Some conferences will gather in new ways around burgers or chili with the Bishop; some will gather in the more familiar ways. Either way, all of us are a part of the work we do in God’s so-loved world. Plan to attend your conference assembly!

Rostered leaders in their first 3 years of call are required to attend FCTE. The ELCA recognizes that the transition from seminary to the parish is one of the most significant changes in a rostered leader’s life. The First Call Theological Education events are meant to spend time tending to that transition and assist in leadership formation. Join Luther Seminary Faculty, Concordia College, and Synod staffs as we gather to talk about your ministry and passions for ministry. Each afternoon we will be breaking into small groups to discuss the topics and contexts that are most relevant to you.
