New Resource for LGBTQIA Candidates: Extraordinary Lutheran Ministries' "Unofficial Guide" for First Call Candidates

Please click here to download a new resource from Extraordinary Lutheran Ministries, designed for LGBTQIA First Call candidates: Mysteries of the Ages: ELM’s Unofficial Guide for LGBTQ First Call Candidates.

This peer-to-peer resource, put together by LGBTQ first call pastors and members of ELM’s Candidacy Accompaniment Team, is intended to demystify parts of the candidacy and call process from Approval through First Call.  The resource is geared toward LGBTQ candidates specifically, but may have broader appeal as well.

Also, two new parts of ELM's website that candidates may be interested in: ELM Seminary Advocates  and the Proclaim Seminarian Team.  ELM is inspired and encouraged to hear about all the ways members of the Proclaim Seminarian Team are welcoming new LGBTQ students and engaging on campuses this fall.
