Region 7

Partner Synods of Region 7 of ELCA

Region 7 works to connect the work of the ELCA and seven partner synods with their more than 1,300 congregations and over 600,000 baptized members. A main purpose is to keep church leaders in contact with each other and to encourage growth and creativity in ministry. Councils focus on mission and leadership development and staff teams strategize about communications, stewardship and evangelism. The Region also sponsors an Institute for Congregational Ministry, which involves newly called individuals in continuing education. Bishops of the Region meet several times a year. The Rev. Peggy M. Wuertele, Regional Coordinator
