The Steering Committee for the Organizer of the Synod Communities of Color position has been delighted to interview five strong candidates for this position, and will announce the successful candidate later this month. The Holy Spirit is at work in this call process!

This leader will draw on a community organizing approach to connect individuals and churches of color with each other, to discover joint interests as well as hopes for shared ministries and support from the Synod. It is a term position of approximately one year, at approximately half-time, and will be guided by a Steering Committee and report to the Synod Executive. The Asian, Black, Latino/Hispanic, Immigrant, Middle Eastern, and Native American communities have much to teach and much to gain as joint ministries bubble up and coalesce, facilitated by this Organizer position.
