The Minneapolis Area Synod of the ELCA  supports rostered ministers throughout the 147 churches and two Synodically Authorized Worshiping Communities in our broad geographic area.  We are here to serve rostered ministers at all stages of ministry.

Whether you are a first-call candidate; a rostered minister seeking peer support, a sabbatical, or perhaps a new call; our resources and staff members can help guide you through the process.

Explore this site or call the synod office directly to have a conversation about your needs. We look forward to connecting.
