The Greater Milwaukee Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is asking members to prayerfully consider service as a voting member of the 2019 ELCA Churchwide Assembly.
Due to the resignation of a previously-elected voting member, the synod is seeking someone to serve at the Churchwide Assembly, which is being held in downtown Milwaukee from August 5 through 10 this year. Eligible individuals will be:
- A voting member of a congregation which belongs to the Greater Milwaukee Synod and
- No more than 30 years of age on the date on which they are selected to serve and
- A person of color or a person whose primary language is other than English
The ELCA covers transportation, housing and other related costs. Voting Members do not pay a registration fee.
Voting Members of the Churchwide Assembly continue in that role until the next Churchwide Assembly, which will take place in the summer of 2022. Normally this means that service is limited to this year’s Assembly, but they would be called upon for any special Churchwide Assemblies before the next scheduled Assembly.
If you meet the qualifications for this opening, and are considering serving or simply want more information, please contact Matthew Brockmeier, Synod Secretary, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 920-254-0408 or Mary Romskog, Executive Assistant for Administration and Candidacy, at email@example.com or 414-671-1212.
