Deerfield, WI  by

“The Bishop took the time at the beginning to truly understand our congregation and our unique needs.”
Jim St. Vincent, Lake Edge – Madison

"Thank you for coming out to visit our little congregation. It is nice to know the synod cares.”
Rochelle Cashman, Albany - Albany

“When our senior pastor retired last year - and two of our associate pastors accepted calls elsewhere - we needed help! The Bishop and Synod Staff responded most generously with their time, wise counsel and support."

Partnership With Congregations
Almost every Sunday, the Synod Staff is out and about in a different synod congregation for an event or celebration or to support a congregation in a particular situation. Ordinations, installation, congregational anniversaries and so many other special events, or just ordinary Sundays, are wonderful opportunities to express our partnership together.

Care of Congregations happens in a wide variety of ways:

Annual Meetings
Assembly Videos
Bishop’s Messages

Congregations in Transition
Compensation Guidelines
Conflict Resolution
Congregational Health
Consultation Team
Discipline Team
Installation Service
