ECP Roster Grows
Abstract: Jen Rude, Steve Keiser approved for ECP Roster.
The Extraordinary Candidacy Project's Fall approval interviews were held in Philadelphia on November 11 and two new candidates were added to the roster of candidates approved for call: Steve Keiser and Jen Rude.
In October, the candidacy committee of the Sierra-Pacific Synod of the ELCA interviewed Jen Rude but was unable to make a decision about her candidacy. Throughout the candidacy process, Jen has maintained a stance of "principled non-compliance" regarding the ELCA policy that requires celibacy of gay and lesbian clergy.(Vol. I, iv, November 19, 2006 )
