We in the Southeastern Minnesota Synod have entered into a very intentional effort to identify strong and faithful Christian leaders in our synod. We are inviting pastors and other leaders in our midst to share the names of those they believe could serve the church well at the synod level.

Please read through the workbook noting the vacancies and the responsibilities associated with these open positions. Then email to provide the Nominating Committee with the names, contact information and list of leadership qualities of as many people as you deem qualified for the various vacancies indicated. Please encourage others to submit nominations as well. Note: you must provide your contact information on the nominating form and obtain permission from all nominees before their names are submitted. 

Thank you,

Ann Peterson, Synod Vice President and the Southeastern Minnesota Synod Nominating Committee
