African Descent Lutheran Association
African Descent Lutheran Association (ADLA) develops and promotes connections plus support for initiatives of special interest to those within the African, African American, and African descent community.
Our Delaware-Maryland Synod has an active African Descent Lutheran Association (ADLA) Chapter focusing on engaging, involving and investing in the gifts, interests and capacity of people of African descent in every aspect of the life of this church, our synod and globally. They gather monthly as a source of information and forum for theological reflection, we strive to develop leaders, supporting mainstream involvement with the DE-MD Synod as well as the Ethnic Specific and Multicultural Ministries of the ELCA.
The goal: Full Partnership – Full Participation!
