An Invitation to Participate in the Global Service

Serving the global church is a great opportunity to engage with and learn from other cultures, travel and discover more about who you are as a Christian. The Global Mission Unit is developing a recruitment strategy for members of the ELCA, especially members of ethnically diverse populations and those whose first language is other than English. Your input will be the basis for the strategy. We are interested in hearing from all regarding what would make global service appealing. Please click on this link for a short questionnaire.

Thank you for your time!
