And Jesus said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation.” Mark 16:15

 Proclaim is the professional community for publicly identified LGBTQIA+ Lutheran rostered leaders, seminarians and candidates.

Proclaim members who are currently awaiting call, seminarians, and those in between calls or in a non-congregational call are ready to share the Gospel with your community.

Is there a Proclaim member in your area available for pulpit supply?

Check the list below to see if there is a Proclaim member in your area.  Once you find a person that is in your location with the availability that you need, please contact Christephor Gilbert, Communications and Development Coordinator, to connect with that person.

The nature of our list does not allow us to serve as emergency supply.  Please allow two weeks at a minimum to book with our Proclaim members.
