CVR Staff Connects with Wider Church

This past weekend the CVR staff brought the work of the CVR to the larger ELCA church body in two presentations. Drawing from the experience of developing the Fraternity Alumni Network program, on Saturday the CVR staff presented "Where Did They Go? A Ministry for Sustaining High School Youth" at the Northern Illinois Synod Congregational Resourcing Event.  This presentation helped congregations understand how mentoring ministry celebrates the unique gifts, passions and interests of the youth and adults and equipped congregations to develop such a ministry.  On Sunday, Christie Anderson, CVR Program Associate, presented "Discerning Vocation"  for adult learners at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Davenport.  This presentation focused on the biblical and theological implications of vocation and provided space and time for those present to reflect on who God calls them to be in daily life through reflective exercises.
