Hope Lutheran Church, John was trained to become a Stephen Miister. As a Stephen Leader he has trained Stephen Ministers both at Mt. Hope and at his current congregation St. Stephen the Martyr.

Bishop Paul Erickson will give one or two workshops as his schedule allows. Another workshop of interest is one on human trafficking.

Don't forget that you will need to elect/re-elect Board Members. This year we will elect a President for a two (2) year term, a Treasurer for a two (2) year term, a secretary for a (1) year term and 5 Board Members, one to serve as Convention Intern and the others on the Mission Team. You can download a nomination form here.

We will also need to elect a voting member to the 2020 Triennial Convention in Phoenix.

Scholarships are available for the SWO Convention. An application form for the scholarship can be found here. Remember to send the form to Karen Hoffman by August 23rd.

Is there action you want our SWO to be involved with? Is there a project you want to see our SWO take on? Are there any changes you want to see made to our SWO? If the answer is "yes" the way to accomplish this is to submit a Resolution which can be acted on at the October Convention. More informatio on Resolutions can be found here
