The North Carolina Synod is blessed with hard-working leaders in congregations all across the synod. Some leaders are officially rostered by the greater church, some are paid staff and some are volunteers. We are committed to supporting these leaders in their many areas of ministry.
Rostered ministers in the ELCA are those called to Word and Sacrament Ministry (pastors) or Word and Service Ministry (deacons). Each has followed a specific course of study, been approved by their home synod’s candidacy committee and called to serve in ministry.
