Molly Beck Dean Accepts ELCA Position

Molly Beck Dean, Assistant to the Bishop and Youth Ministry Specialist, has accepted a position as director of the ELCA Youth Gathering, effective in January. “Molly’s love for our young people, her attention to equipping adult leaders, her creativity, courage and her deep spirituality have touched thousands of young lives during her 12 years as our Youth Ministry Specialist,” said Bishop Claire Burkat. In her new role Molly will be responsible for faith formation events that bring together nearly 40,000 young people, adults and staff. “This is a huge opportunity and challenge, and I know that the Holy Spirit will guide and bless Molly as she is called to this new work,” the bishop said.
