In July 2019, the bishops of the synods of Region 9 of the ELCA (VA, NC, SC, SE, FB, and Caribbean) agreed to a Region 9 Bishops’ Relational Agreement for boundaries, candidacy, and call process.
—The ELCA Region 9 Bishops’ Relational Agreement for Boundaries, Candidacy, and Call Process
The Region 9 Agreement begins: “Committed to always reforming for the health of leaders, vitality of congregations, and the flourishing of the gospel of Jesus Christ, we agree to work together as a region to address systemic issues facing rostered ministers who are women. Together, we will work to create a culture change in our region through deepening trust and relationship—creating authentic avenues for reporting, responding, education, advocacy, and care.” Stay tuned for more information on the Gender Justice and Inclusion Boundaries Education, and save these dates for this regional Zoom event.
