History

History

The ELCA is a result of a merger among The American Lutheran Church (ALC), the Lutheran Church in America (LCA) and the Association of Evangelical Lutheran Churches (AELC) (which had earlier withdrawn from the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod after 1975).

CLU Executive Skills Impact

CLU Impact Stories from 2019 & 2020 Participants

Financial and marketing techniques were not taught in seminary, and yet are sorely needed. Marketing is something we have little experience with, especially. This should allow me to understand better where our capabilities lie, where our underused resources might be, and how we can use them better.
