Practice DiscipleshipWhat is Practice Discipleship?
Practice Discipleship is an initiative of the ELCA to raise up leaders for the sake of faith formation. Practice Discipleship is calling leaders to come together to have meaningful conversations about ministry, and to gain tips and tools to help all people on our journey of being a lifelong follower of Christ.

Practice Discipleship is for all church leaders – volunteers and paid staff….pastors, children, youth and family staff, councils, and other ministry leaders!

Practice Discipleship focus’ on the exploring seven faith practices (serve, give, encourage, study, worship, pray, invite) by helping leaders to live out their baptismal promises to live, hear, proclaim, strive and serve.

India Youth ExchangeThe Youth and Family Network is Growing.
There is always room for one more!
Join other youth and family team members from congregations all over the synod for networking, sharing of ideas, learning, fun, fellowship and laughter. From time to time, the network also gets involved in program planning for synod events. We can make a difference to our youth and family programs in our congregations.Share what YOU know with others that NEED to know. Let's do ministry together! Are you a pastor that's reading this? Bring or send your lay leaders who interface with Youth. These meetings are helpful for all of us!  Meetings will resume in the Fall of 2016. Join us!
