About ELCA Glocal Events
God's work in mission always propels us to encounter the neighbor, particularly in the stranger. ELCA Glocal Mission Gatherings equip us for God's work in today's global and local realities as well as their "glocal" intersections.
What is mission? Who is the neighbor? Let's consider these questions together as they relate to our migrating and immigrating world. Come, join us for mission conversations around the realities of the world we live in today.
"Then the Lord said to Cain, 'where is your brother Abel?' He said, 'I do not know; am I my brother's keeper?'" — Genesis 4.9
The Glocal Mission Gathering (GMG) brings together congregational leaders for a day and a half of worship, workshops and sharing around global and local mission.
