Deacon Andrew More and Deacon Deborah Poole of the South Carolina Synod Lifelong Faith Formation Network. Description: In the digital world of resources, the role is shifting from providing religious content and programming to gathering religious content and experiences for all ages.

Bring your tablets or laptops and join us for a look at these resources.

Deborah is a Deacon at Pisgah Lutheran Church in Lexington. She is the chairperson of the SC Synod Lifelong Faith Formation Network and also serves on the Mission Endowment Board. Deborah is married and lives with her husband, Steve, and two dogs in Lexington.

Andrew serves as a Deacon at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church as their Minister for Faith Formation. A 2002 graduate of the Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary, Andrew’s greatest passions are making the Bible more accessible and understandable to the people of our congregations, and uniting the Christian community to take a more active role in serving our neighbors in need beyond the walls of our buildings. Andrew currently serves on the Synod Candidacy Committee, the Synod Lifelong Faith Formation Task Force, and the boards for GraceWorks Youth Servant Camp, The Journey Missionary Performing Arts Ministry, and Beloved Special Needs Ministry.

11:00 a.m. Pre-Assembly Workshop: Is Funding Ministry a Pain? It doesn’t have to hurt. (Carolina B)

Deacon Mitzie Schafer, Regional Gift Planner for the Carolinas for the ELCA Foundation
What does your congregation need money for? Operations, a new roof, helping the food pantry? The Ministry Funding Plan process helps meet these needs. There are two key areas of consideration. First, is your congregation ready to receive larger gifts? Example: What would happen if someone left your congregation a submarine? Secondly, do your members know how to leave a legacy gift to your congregation in a manner that ensures the congregation, not the government, will receive the gift? Deacon Schafer will not only share the process, but she guides the congregation through every step (pain free), at no charge to the congregation or it’s members. She has nothing to sell you and she doesn’t work on commission. Her work is funded through the ELCA Foundation and our regional partners. You will leave the workshop with a plan.

Deacon Mitzie Schafer serves as the Regional Gift Planner for the Carolinas for the ELCA Foundation. Mitzie holds a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice and a Master of Art in Religion from the Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary. Mitzie’s first call was shared with her husband, Rev. Jason Schafer, as mission developers for Crossroads Lutheran in Indian Land, SC. She served in development for Lutheran Family Services of the Carolinas, now Lutheran Services Carolinas. Most recently, Mitzie served the last seven years under call from the SC Synod at Epworth Children’s Home in development and as the Executive Vice President. Mitzie lives in Prosperity, SC with her husband and two children.
