Retreat of Newly Elected Church Leaders (RoNEL) 2023
19 Nov - 27 Nov 2023
Leadership and Episcopal Ministry in the LWF Communion
The LWF invites newly elected church leaders - Bishops, Pastor Presidents - in its member churches to its annual Retreat of Newly Elected Leaders (RoNEL).
Participants explore and reflect together on the understanding of leadership, share insights of how it is practiced across the communion, and deliberate on being leaders in the Lutheran communion.
The retreat is a space where church leaders can:
- strengthen relationships among themselves
- connect and support each other
- contribute through mutual learning and sharing of experiences
- enhance understanding of the LWF Communion Office as a resource for the member churches
- share in daily worship and prayer
The LWF Department for Theology, Mission and Justice coordinates the program in close collaboration with the Office of the General Secretary and the LWF Center in Wittenberg, Germany.
- 19 to 23 November - GENEVA, Switzerland
- 24 to 27 November - WITTENBERG, Germany
