Church Together

An Inter-Connected Church

The ministry and witness of the ELCA is lived out through three interconnected expressions: Congregations, Synods, and Churchwide Organization. In addition, our synod ministries embody God's love beyond the congregational walls.  Synods also work together as regions. 
How we work together


Ecumenical Partners

We find fullness in relationship with other churches even as we partner with other religions 
and communities for the sake of the world. Partnerships include other church bodies and ecumenical organizations.
Our Ecumenical Partnerships


Ministry Partners

Ministry Partners are organizations that operate and are governed outside of the Rocky Mountain Synod, but are affiliated with the synod and are considered ministries of the synod. Ministry Partners include colleges, universities, seminaries, health ministries, service organizations, and outdoor ministries.
