The ELCA Congregations of Eastern Missouri work together to share resources and ideas, as well as mutual support. The rostered and lay leadership meet regularly to share ministry updates, prayer, and occasionally lunch. Several times a year, the Conference sponsors an Academy with workshops designed for lay and rostered leaders. These workshops usually include topics ranging from Congregational Vitality to Worship, Leadership, and Anti-Racism. Conference Deans and the Conference Communications staff send out regular newsletters and other helpful information to keep congregations connected across the region.
