The program encourages seminarian involvement in the PNW initiative as part of their ongoing vision for ministry in the ELCA. Student projects will be implemented/tested in a local ministry context by the seminarian and may be posted on the PNW page of the ELCA as resources for congregations and distributed through the PNW network.
Developed projects are intended to be practical in nature, which can be implemented within congregations, synod events, or faith-based organizations. Projects should align with the foci of PNW: accompaniment, advocacy, and awareness raising. For example, it might take the form of a bible study, devotions for Advent or Lent, podcasts, interactive youth events, etc.
