Last week was Regional Assignment Day for my classmates and me. We all found out which part of the country we'll be going to for first call.
After regional assignment, seminarians get assigned to one of the 65 synods of the ELCA. Only a couple of regions have made synod assignments so far, but I'm one of the lucky few who already knows which synod I'll be going to.
(Drumroll, please...) Steve and I have been assigned to the Southwest California Synod. This synod comprises Los Angeles County, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, and Ventura County, as well as perhaps a little more of southern California.
The next step is to look at congregational profiles and hopefully arrange an interview. Stay tuned for more news!
