Weekly Online Gathering for ELCA Leaders

Wednesdays, 1PM Central

You are invited to join this weekly gathering designed to provide encouragement and support for ELCA leaders across the church and throughout society. Participants will hear topical presentations related to how we are called to be Church in the time of COVID-19, as well as an opportunity to be in small group discussions with an ELCA group coach facilitating the conversation. All of this is designed to help us process our feelings in this strange and fearful time and to create a space where we can each name our next most faithful step forward in our unique context.

Title: How are you? Emotional Well-being of ELCA leaders

Rev. Jeff Thieman, President and CEO of Portico Benefit Services, will join us on June 3 to share a perspective on the current state of emotional well-being of ELCA leaders, a dive into aggregate data, and a look at the implications for holistic wellness. This will include resources available to ELCA Benefit Plan Members, as well as to the general public. Rev. Theimann has a unique lens from which to speak about wellness in this time of pandemic and looks forward to joining us to talk about the holistic resources available through Portico that are designed to strengthen our physical, emotional, and financial well-being.

Rev. Thiemann was called to his current role in 2011. When asked, he indicated he was drawn to lead Portico by the opportunity to combine two things he cares about deeply: solving the complex challenges of health care and retirement planning, and helping more people through God’s work. These gifts are surely being given the chance to shine in our current circumstances.

ELCA Coaching is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
