Help shape the future of our work together!  We believe that, just as the waters of baptism give us new life and shape us for mission, we are called to let the waters of God’s love flow through us, that the whole world might experience the living water which is Christ. The way we live into this vision and mission can be summarized by:

  • Compassion,
  • Leadership, and
  • Innovation

In light of who we are and what we seek to become, we desire to test the possibility of a campaign to boldly move into this vision and mission. As your bishop, I feel God is calling us to be more than we have been. The world is changing, and it is time to stop being afraid of that change. Instead, let’s embrace it and move faithfully to become the church of the next generation.

Before we launch on such a large venture we need to test community reaction to our plans. The results of our test will be shared at the Synod Assembly.  We would love to have your input in this process.

Start here:  Read the feasibility study prospectus and become familiar with the projects that we are testing for a possible campaign.

Please remember, we have not launched a campaign. We are simply testing the concept of a campaign. We have engaged the firm of Gronlund, Sayther, Brunkow (GSB) to help us determine whether we should conduct an appeal and what that appeal should look like. You will hear more when we are together for the Synod Assembly.  Thanks again for your participation in the process.

In Christ,

Bishop Erickson
