Stewardship Development Policy

Women of the ELCA subscribes to the Policy Against Electioneering shown below. Please be aware that this policy not only prohibits promoting one candidate over another in person, but also by email, telephone and on social media including Facebook, Twitter and any other platform. Nominees should also refrain from any activity contrary to this policy.

Policy Against Electioneering
There are a variety of gifts, but the same Spirit AND
There are a variety of services, but the same Lord AND
There are a variety of activities, but the same God who activates them in everyone.

Women of the ELCA affirms and believes all women should have equal opportunity for involvement and leadership in the organization.

Women of the ELCA further believes that the Spirit that binds us all through baptism is the guiding factor for each voting member to prayerfully review and consider each nominee’s biographical information prior to conventions of the SWOs and the triennial convention of the CWO.

Each participant further understands that promoting one candidate over another through campaigning is in fact interfering with God’s plan and actions for participants of Women of the ELCA.

Adopted by the Churchwide Executive Board, October 2016.
