ELCA REGION 9
June 20-24, 2017
This annual event is for youth who have completed grades 11 or 12 by June 2017 and combines in-depth study and group discussion of basic theological tenets of the Christian Faith with opportunities for in reflection, worship, and service projects. Participants must be nominated by a parish pastor or lay rostered leader from an ELCA home congregation by March 15, 2017. Bishop’s School moves its location each year around the various synods in ELCA Region 9 (The synods in the southeast US, including Virginia). In 2017, Bishop’s School will be held at Camp Kinard in South Carolina. Note: Bishop’s School will not be offered in 2018 because of the scheduling conflict with the ELCA Youth Gathering.
