TEEM - General Information

General Information | Becoming a Candidate >

TEEM is a program of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) that “responds to the missional needs of the church” by establishing requirements for ordination that take into consideration “the leadership gifts, ministry skills, cultural learning styles/experiences and/or age” of a candidate.  TEEM candidates will serve in “emerging ministries” or “ministry settings that are without ordained pastoral leadership.”

Read through this site to learn more about TEEM and how the program might be the right fit for you. If you have questions, be sure to contact us. Dr. Michael Krentz directs the TEEM program at LTSP.
