About this Event

Hosted by the Northeastern Minnesota Synod of the ELCA

Announcing our Yearly Intensive Series 2020-2021

WHAT: The Lay Leader Network Yearly Intensive Series is a four-session educational program for adult learners, lay leaders and potential lay leaders of all ages. It seeks to balance head and heart in a life-long learning program and to build up the Body of Christ in both congregational settings and the community beyond and around us, ESPECIALLY HERE, ESPECIALLY NOW, EVEN through COVID and other challenges surround us. The series invites learners to experience heart transformation through dynamic engagement with God’s Word and Missional expression through contextual engagement.

Each year, the Yearly Intensive Series’ biblical study content aligns with the ELCA lectionary, inviting new lay students to enter the ever-evolving, ongoing three-year program cycle at any given year. The 2020/2021 year will engage the Gospels of Mark and John.

Each yearly series has a fourfold focus: Biblical Study/Lutheran Theology(35%), Leadership and Spiritual Development (30%), Engaging Missional Context (20%), and Specific Ministry Focus (15%)

This year’s four-session series’ main presenters will be the Rev. Dr. Mark Skinner and the Rev. Dr. David Mesner with additional guest presenters in selected topic areas TBD in response to the deep needs around us, eg. dismantling racism, addressing creation care, caring for those most vulnerable, understanding and grappling with increasing secularization in North America, etc.
