We are excited to invite you to your 2016 Synod Assembly!

Once again being held on the campus of Gustavus Adolphus in St. Peter, MN, your assembly will open on Friday, June 10, and close on Saturday, June 11, 2016. We are blessed to have Rev. Dr. Robin Steinke, President of Luther Seminary, as our ELCA Representative this year. Rev. Steinke will deepen our understanding of the opportunities within our own congregations. Additionally, Steinke will brief us on what it means to be church together beyond our synod. Chaplain of the Gustavus Adolphus College, Rev. Dr. Brian Konkol will be our Bible Study leader. He will lead us in table discussions as we talk about deepening congregation vitality, enhancing global and local mission and developing servant leaders.
