At their meeting on March 2, 2020 Synod Council adopted the following resolution: “That the Northeastern Pennsylvania Synod establish a fund to be named the Samuel and Linda Zeiser Fund for Leaders Endowment, having a goal of at least $25,000 and with the intent that this named endowment provide scholarship assistance though the Fund for Leaders to persons studying for ordained ministry and that permission be given to solicit contributions to this fund from individuals and congregations of the synod.”
The ELCA Fund for Leaders is the scholarship program of our church supporting future leaders of tremendous promise studying at one of the seven seminaries of the ELCA to become pastors or deacons in the church. By making seminary more affordable, this Fund enables more future ministers to go to seminary and helps them graduate with less debt, empowering those whom God calls into ministry to go and serve as the church needs and the Holy Spirit leads.
