ABOUT THE METROPOLITAN NEW YORK SYNOD: The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has three expressions: over 10,000 congregations, 65 regional synods, and the church wide organization. The Metropolitan New York Synod is the regional expression of the ELCA and encompasses 190 parishes in all five boroughs of New York City, Long Island, Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster and Westchester Counties. The 190 parishes are greatly diverse, from rural outposts to inner-city storefront churches, with a good dose of suburban mid-sized congregations as well. Worship is conducted in over a dozen languages, including Spanish, Arabic, Cantonese, Mandarin, Norwegian, German, Swahili, and American Sign Language. Progressive and highly inclusive, the Synod champions diversity and tolerance, with strong multicultural and global missions, as well as unwavering advocacy for children, the LGBTQIA+ community and displaced immigrants. Under the leadership of interim Bishop, The Reverend Donald McCoid, the Synod will be identifying a new Bishop in May of 2019, to be fully installed by fall of 2019.
