Rostered Leaders: Convocation is a vital opportunity for rostered leaders to come together for worship, study, mutual upbuilding, and fellowship. We gather together at Lutheridge, in Arden NC. Your presence at convocation is a blessing to others as together we are renewed in spirit for the ministries to which we are called.

Congregation Members: Please encourage your rostered leaders to attend Convocation. This time of reflection, renewal, and collegiality is important to the spiritual health of your leaders and to the mission of Christ which we do together! Please request that your congregation leaders provide financial support for all of your rostered leaders to attend – pastors, associates in ministry, diaconal ministers, and deaconesses.
