A Call to Prayer: Prayers to raise up leaders for this church

At its March 2017 gathering, the ELCA Conference of Bishops claimed identifying, inviting, equipping, and supporting leaders and cultivating vital faith communities as two of the highest priorities for our work together. This call to prayer, aligned with Presiding Bishop Eaton’s leadership initiative, intends to inspire ELCA leaders to seek out and encourage gifted people in their congregations, communities, and networks to consider a call to the ministry of the gospel.
