Future Directions of the ELCA
Propelled by a commitment to Lutheran traditions and to being a community of faith that is always forming and being renewed, the ELCA’s presiding bishop, Church Council and Conference of Bishops initiated a process to engage the ELCA in conversation about future directions – to help this church journey faithfully and effectively together in the years ahead.
