As part of the Bishop election process, a Synod is required to develop, distribute, and evaluate a survey regarding the synod’s ministry and desired attributes for the synod bishop. This is done in coordination with the ELCA Department for Research and Evaluation. A committee was formed with representatives from each of the South Dakota Conference to develop the survey.
This survey is now available by clicking here.
All Surveys must be completed by August 1 at the above link.
Individuals, Church Councils and Congregations are encouraged to complete the Survey.
A report on the Survey results will be available on December 1, 2018.
