Spiritual Direction and Coaching Grants for Rostered Leaders

As announced at the Synod Assembly, your Synod Council affirmed the request to release designated monies for the sake of the spiritual and professional health of you, our rostered ministers. We will be subsidizing up to $30 per month, per minister, for a Spiritual Director and/or coach (yes, that means up to $60 per month total).

To access these funds, both the provider and the rostered minister must submit requests via Google Forms (links below). The funds will be paid directly to the provider ; the rostered leader will be responsible for the difference between the fee and the subsidy. It is your responsibility to negotiate this payment process with your provider.

Linked below is a current list of Spiritual Directors that the Synod Offices have vetted. You may, however, find your own spiritual director. Likewise, a link to ELCA coaches is also provided. As we get more ELCA coaches in our synod we will add this list. Again, you are welcome to find your own coach.

These funds are available IMMEDIATELY!

If you have any questions, please reach out to the Synod Offices.
