Southeastern Synod ELCA

Region 9 Ministers of Word and Service Gathering

Monday, March 02 2020 to Wednesday, March 04 2020

A Region 9 Ministers of Word and Service Gathering is planned for March 02-04, 2020. The Gathering will be held at Lutheranch in Tallapoosa, GA. All Ministers of Word and Service as well as current candidates are invited to attend this event. 

The theme of this event is "Moving Forward in Christ." Our Gathering will consist of worship, keynotes, study, fellowship, and rest.  

We are excited that The Rev. Kevin L. Strickland, Bishop of the Southeastern Synod, and Dr. Mindy Makant, Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Lenoir Rhyne University, have accepted invitations to join us as leaders of this event. 

The planning team would appreciate it if this event can be shared with current candidates and Deacons that serve in various capacities across Region 9.  We also appreciate your support and prayers as we gather together, learning to move forward in Christ together. 

Partial Scholarships to attend this event may be available. Contact Deacon Deborah Poole at for more information.
