During the meeting, we will also convene an Ecclesiastical Council to discern the readiness for ministry of Lesa Branham. An Ecclesiastical Council is the opportunity for local churches in a region to hear from a candidate for ordination, ask questions, and affirm the individual’s call to ordained ministry. Clergy and Laity of the Western Association churches are invited and encouraged to attend to support Lesa during this pivotal moment in her journey of discernment. Questions should be directed to Robert Tallitsch.
