The following Pastors have been nominated as Bishop Election Candidates for the Northeastern Minnesota Synod, 2020. Please note: Nominees are listed in alphabetical order on your desktop, but may appear in no particular order on mobile devices.
At the nominee forum held in Hermantown on March 14, the Bishop Election Committee recorded video interviews with each nominee. Due to social distancing and the postponement of the 2020 Synod Assembly, the BEC wanted to make these available to voting members of the synod. Our thanks to BEC member Pastor James Muske for recording and editing these videos.

O God, you have called your servants to ventures which we cannot see the ending, by paths as yet untrodden, through perils unknown.
Give us faith to go out with good courage, not knowing where we go, but only that your hand is leading us and your love supporting us; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. - ELW pg. # 304
