Extraordinary Callings

Holy & Queer Resistance in the Lutheran Church



In 2015, ELM embarked on a journey with the Center for LGBTQ and Gender Studies (CLGS) at Pacific School of Religion to archive our historical documents to preserve and celebrate the roots of our movement. We’re excited to announce that this first wave of material has been successfully archived and will be on display to the public for a limited time.


“Extraordinary Callings” is an opportunity to celebrate the history contained in these archives and to hear how this movement is alive today, reflecting on the past and future of our movement; and, will feature select items from ELM’s archived material displayed alongside artwork from current Proclaim Members in PSR’s Badè Museum.


Could you help ELM make this exhibit a success?


We are looking for partners, of varying levels, to help us make this event possible and to help us meet our giving goal of $10,000 for this event. Those levels include:


  • $1,000  Event Sponsor (Name/logo included on all promotional and event material and displayed prominently on event signage)
  • $750     Extraordinary Sponsor (Name/logo listed on event materials on event signage)
  • $500     Mission Sponsor (Name/logo printed in event program and event signage)
  • $250     Faithful Sponsor (Name/logo printed in event program)


Sponsorships (gifts to ELM that are tax-deductible) help us cover the costs of food and drink, printing and marketing, and travel to the Bay Area for our panelists.Your participation in this event also speaks volumes to your belief in the right of pastors of all gender and sexual identities to serve our church!
