Worship. Grow. Connect. Join leaders from across this church for the first-ever Rostered Ministers Gathering of the ELCA.
The ELCA Bureau for Federal Chaplaincy Ministries requires all chaplains to attend the annual ecclesiastical professional development training in order to remain in good standing for endorsement unless prevented by military deployment or organizational mission requirements. This annual chaplain training is known as the Chaplain Education and Training Event. It provides a time for our military (both active duty and reserves), Veterans Affairs and Bureau of Prison chaplains a time for worship, spiritual renewal, continuing education, best practices, networking and fellowship. This training also allows our chaplains to maintain the highest level of proficiency in pastoral care ministry.
