Wellness of Rural Pastors in the ELCA

This email is being sent at the request of Bishop Prois in cooperation with Pastor Russ Lackey of Grandview University.





Greetings during this season of Easter!


Grand View University is applying for a Lilly Endowment grant. We are focusing on the wellness of rural pastors in the ELCA. To bolster our application, we would like you to complete a short survey that will take less than 5 minutes. Your participation is anonymous. If we are awarded the grant, this will fund an annual gathering of rural pastors (free of charge) in order to help them thrive in their lives, ministries, and relationships. This survey is being sent to ELCA pastors in the Western Iowa Synod and the Southeastern Iowa Synod.
Please complete the survey here: Thriving in Rural Ministry Survey (ELCA)
Thank you for the work you do. May God bless and keep you.
