Over the next two years, pastors and deacons in our Synod will participate in cohorts in a process of leadership formation. The Thriving Leadership Formation program particularly works with pastors and deacons to deepen their spiritual and relationship-building resources, as a key component of being competent leaders in their ministry.
This program is carried out in coordination with Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary, California Lutheran University and all the synods of Region 1 and 2 of the ELCA. It is funded with a grant from the Lilly Foundation.
Deacons Cohort Leader: Tammy Rismiller
As Deacons, we have a unique calling to our faith communities. Each of our callings are individual and unique in a wide range of settings, but we are all united as Deacons. Our work is difficult, challenging, daring, and life-giving. I am inviting you to join me in the Thriving Leadership Formation – Deacon Cohort. Together, we will grow in faith, build community, find a safe place to share, and help each other thrive as faith leaders.
