We are honored to have African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Bishop Vashti Murphy McKenzie as our preacher for this year’s Assembly! Bishop McKenzie is the presiding Bishop of the 10th Episcopal District AME church and serves as the 117th elected and consecrated bishop of the AME Church. Her election in 2000 was historic as she became the first woman, in the more than 200-year history of the church, to be elected to that office. Watch this local news interview with her: First Woman Bishop Talks Life Lessons for All Faiths.
ELCA Churchwide Representative: Victoria Flood, Senior Director for Mission Support

As of January 20, the plan continues for this assembly to be an in-person only event. We will be taking pandemic precautions and be following the protocols of our host, King of Glory Lutheran Church (Dallas), and Dallas County. We appreciate your grace as we all navigate changing realities up to the last minute.
There will be several elections at the assembly including synod treasurer and synod bishop. Bishop Gronberg has indicated his discernment to stand for this election. Following synod practice, when the current bishop has indicated they will stand for election, there will be no official pre-nomination process. An elections team independent of the bishop’s office has been authorized by the synod council. Nominations are requested for synod treasurer. Please refer those to email@example.com.
More details forthcoming.
