Encouraging Youth and Young Adults to be Leaders in the Church

In 2012 the Rocky Mountain Synod will continue to live into the ELCA's goal of expanded roles for youth and young adults in all expressions of our church. With many congregations planning for annual meetings, our rostered and lay leaders are encouraged to have conversations with the youth and young adults in their midst regarding the opportunity to serve on church council and as voting members at this year's synod assembly.

A youth or young adult voting member is not an additional voting member. The youth or young adult is one of your congregation's allotted voting members (see the column to the right).

Guide for Expanded Roles for Youth and Young Adults


How many voting members?

The membership of the Synod Assembly, of which at least 60% of the voting membership shall be composed of laypersons, shall be constituted as follows:

All ordained ministers under call on the roster of this synod in attendance at the Synod Assembly shall be voting members.

All associates in ministry, deaconesses of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and diaconal ministers, under call, on the official lay rosters of this synod shall have both voice and vote as lay voting members in the Synod Assembly.

A minimum of one lay member elected by each congregation with fewer than 175 baptized members and a minimum of two lay members elected by each congregation with 175 or more baptized members related to this synod, normally one of whom shall be male and one of whom shall be female, shall be voting members.

Congregations having baptized membership of 650 to 1,199 shall be allowed one additional lay voting member (female or male).

Congregations having baptized membership of 1,200 or more shall be allowed two additional lay voting members (one female and one male).

Additional members from each congregation normally shall be equally divided between male and female. The Synod Council seeks to ensure that, as nearly as possible, 50 percent of the lay members of the assembly shall be female and 50 percent shall be male.

Voting membership also includes the officers of this synod.
