Who We Are
The Northeast Valley Consortium (NEVC), established in late 2020, is an emerging partnership of five ELCA congregations located in the northeast part of Phoenix collaborating in ministry for the sake of the Gospel:
- Ascension Lutheran (Paradise Valley)
- Christ the Lord Lutheran (Carefree)
- Living Water Lutheran (Scottsdale)
- New Covenant Lutheran (Scottsdale)
- New Journey Lutheran (Fountain Hills)
Why We Are
Many congregations around the United States are facing challenges. These may include: forming Christian community with members, children and neighbors and a disconnect between church practices and people’s daily lives. The Northeast Valley Consortium is learning how to navigate these disruptive shifts in congregational life by collaborating in ministry for the sake of the Gospel.
How We Are
We are team driven and organized around passion-informed projects in response to the needs in our communities and cities:
- Communications & Public Relations
- Caring for our Neighbors: Housing & Raising Funds for Afghan Evacuees
- Christian Education: Adult Vacation Bible School
- Spiritual Practices: Learning How to Follow Jesus in Daily Life
- Guest Lecturer Events such as “Faith Formation in the Secular Age” with Dr. Andy Root, March 2022
The Northeast Valley Consortium, partnered with the Grand Canyon Synod, is learning that together we can do ministry bigger and bolder, going further than we ever imagined. We are learning. And so far, we have learned that the best way forward into God’s future is not on our own, but together. By God’s grace, we are collaborating in ministry for the sake of the Gospel.
