Synod School

Synod School offers week-long classes in personal and professional development and is open to everyone. This program, in its 67th year, annually draws more than 600 people of all ages from 27 states. We invite you to participate!

This year Jill Duffield, pastor of First Presbyterian Church, Greensboro, NC, and former editor of Presbyterian Outlook, is our convocation speaker and Samuel Son, manager of diversity and reconciliation at the Presbyterian Mission Agency, is our evening worship leader. Bryce Wiebe, director of special offerings, will lead the youth convocation speaker.  Heidi and Greg Bolt, co-pastors of First Presbyterian Church in Red Wing, MN, will lead morning prayers.

Mark your calendars for July 25-30, 2021!
