For such a time as this: 2013-2023 Strategic Plan

Marked with the cross of Christ forever, 
we are claimed, gathered, and sent for the sake of the world.
 

We're building a stronger synod

In 2012 our synod approved our strategic plan that helps our congregations and leaders to be focused on the Gospel and prepared for ministry in the 21st Century. This strategic plan directs the work and resources of our synod through 2023.
