Region 2

We are a church that believes God is calling us into the world — together. In the ELCA, collaborative work happens regionally in the areas of Campus Ministry, First Call Theological Education, and Mobility.

First Call Theological Education

First Call Theological Education is a program of continuing education in which all first call rostered leaders are expected to participate. FCTE focuses on ministerial identity, ministerial context and ministerial skills, and on the building of collegial relationships. The synods of the region work together to provide two core FCTE events each year.

February 14-16, 2017, Grand Canyon Synod
November 7-9, 2017, Southwest California Synod
April 10-12, 2018, Sierra Pacific Synod
November 6-8, 2018, Rocky Mountain Synod
