PracticeDiscipleshipWelcome to the Mitten Synod Practice Discipleship Initiative!




Practice Discipleship (PD) is a movement within the larger ELCA to promote living as disciples through a variety of interactive sessions that help us to live out our baptisms through seven faith initiatives. These faith initiatives are pray, serve, invite, encourage, give, worship, and study.


Practice Discipleship offers free curriculum, online, webinars, and learning sessions that can be used for congregation wide conversations, youth leadership training, council retreats, continuing education for ministry leaders, and a variety of ways that fit your personal congregation and community.
