Is God calling you to rostered, public ministry in the church? Are you wondering what “rostered, public ministry” even is?! The Virginia Synod Vocations Conference allows persons discerning God’s call to spend time in reflection and conversation around call, gifts for ministry, and the Candidacy process in the ELCA.
Due to COVID-19, this year’s Conference will be on Zoom. We’ll begin with a 90-minute session with Welcome and a Panel Discussion with First-Call Rostered Ministers (pastors and deacons in their first 3 years of ministry). Following a 30 minute break, we will gather again, this time in small groups for a 60 minute Q&A. Pastors and deacons are invited to the Vocations Conference, too.
To register for the Vocations Conference, click here, the deadline for registration is Tuesday, August 18th. If you have any questions, contact Pastor Kelly Bayer Derrick (email@example.com) for more info.
