Glocal Events

Upcoming Glocal Mission Gatherings

ELCA Glocal Mission Gatherings equip us for God's work in global and local realities, as well as their "glocal" intersections. At these events, participants consider the questions "What is mission?" and "Who is the neighbor?" Let's consider these question together as they relate to the realities of our world. Come join us for mission conversations around the realities of this world God loves. Check out the information below for a list of upcoming events!
