Equipping the Saints Webinars

Our Equipping the Saints webinars are one of the ways we connect with our congregations, leaders, and members over a variety of topics and discussions. These webinars are announced in our weekly What Matters e-Newsletter and are generally open to all in our synod who are interested in said topic.

Weekly Webinars with Interim Bishop Rogness

As things are rapidly changing during this time of the pandemic, Bishop Rogness led conversations with rostered ministers and lay leaders of our synod while creating space for us to share ideas and ask questions of the bishop and of each other. These webinars were held weekly beginning May 12 and ending on August 18, 2020. The final webinar led by Bishop Rogness prior to his term as Interim Bishop ending was on September 8, 2020.
