Bishop Eaton's Leadership Initiative encourages all of us to seek out and inspire gifted people in our congregations and communities to consider a call to the ministry of the gospel. If you know someone who shows a gift for ministry, help mentor and foster them. Together -- pastors, deacons, lay people – we can bring the word of God to the world.
On these pages, you will find resources to guide discussions and offer inspiration for conversations and individual reflection on becoming a leader within the ELCA. Check back often as this page is updated with more resources and a variety of other testimonials from leaders of this church.
