PoP Advocacy Team

The PoP ELCA Advocacy Team purposes are to:

1. Help PoP members grow in awareness of ELCA Advocacy Ministry.
“ELCA advocacy ministry speaks for biblical values: peacemaking, hospitality to strangers, care for creation, and concern for people living in poverty and struggling with hunger and disease.” www.download.elca.org/ELCA%20Resource%20Repository/2015%20ELCA%20Advocacy%20Priorities.pdf?_ga=1.255565320.187594867.1376877390
