Welcome & Reconciliation Team
WHO WE ARE
We are an official team of the NE MN Synod made up of Rostered and lay persons who are members of the LGBTQ+ community and allies. We are passionate about calling more PROCLAIM candidates in our synod.
WHAT WE DO
We partner with congregation councils and call committees to understand the blessings that come with calling a PROCLAIM candidate. We help clarify misinterpreted scripture regarding LGBTQ+ people. We also discuss with congregation members how to welcome and love our LGBTQ+ family members and neighbors and include them in all aspects of church life.
How to Invite Us to Partner with Your Congregation and When:
We find it most helpful when we begin a partnership at the beginning of your call process, but we can meet with your congregation members anytime before or after you have called a new Rostered Minister. Contact us through the synod office at (218) 724-4424.
