Pr. Char Guiliani Appointed to ELCA Churchwide Commission

Congratulations to Pr. Char Guiliani for being selected as a member of the ELCA Commission for a Renewed Lutheran Church!

Pr. Char (they/them) is Pastor at Incarnation Lutheran in Milwaukee, and Convenor of our synod’s Reconciling in Christ Ministry Team.


The 2022 ELCA Churchwide Assembly voted to establish this Commission to reconsider the structure of the ELCA, with particular attention to our shared commitment to dismantle racism. This group will begin meeting this summer, and will present its findings and recommendations to the 2025 Churchwide Assembly in preparation for a possible reconstituting convention.

"I am looking forward to the work ahead. My hope is we can have the conversations necessary to move the ELCA forward and live into our values. I hope we can renew and truly be God’s church so when someone sees "ELCA," no matter their location, they will know they are safe, welcomed and affirmed as who God has created them to be, God’s Beloved Child."

Please keep Pr. Char and the Commission in your prayers, as the Spirit guides their important work in the coming months!
