Women of the ELCA Gathering
July 16 - July 19
Proclaim + Reform + Celebrate
2020 marks the 50th anniversary of the first woman ordained in a Lutheran church in the United States. We also recognize 40 years since the first women of color were ordained and 10 years since the removal of barriers to affirm the gifts of LGBTQI+ leaders.
For this pre-gathering, we invite women who are pastors to join together to celebrate our calling to professional ministry, lament the hardships that women have faced and continue to face as pastors, and to work together to build a better future. We are called to proclaim, reform and celebrate.
See you in Phoenix in 2020!
