The Byberg Preaching Workshop is dedicated to developing the preaching skills of ELCA pastors in Oregon, Washington and Idaho. We have traditionally done this through a three-day, two-night workshop held in Seaside, Oregon. We are currently discerning how to best do this in the future, given the vast changes in our culture and church. If you have suggestions, please contact the Byberg Committee member in your synod.
Registration is also open to pastors from other Synods, as well to rostered persons from other traditions.
Current Co-Chairs: Sue Appelo and Melinda Wagner
