Call Process is the way that the ELCA’s 65 synodical bishops engage their congregations, church-related organizations, rostered leaders and candidates for rostered ministry in a time of thoughtful assessment and prayerful discernment about their work together in ministry and mission. The Mobility Database System (MDS) allows information from the Call Process forms to be summarized, searched and shared quickly and effectively. It greatly enhances the church’s ability to engage in the common work of Call Process. Each bishop is responsible for the way Call Process is managed within their respective territory. If you have questions about Call Process forms or the use of Call Process Online, please contact your Call Process Administrator.

We are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God's grace. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person--questions, complexities and all. Join us as we do God's work in Christ's name for the life of the world.
