Practicing the call to discipleship in a supportive,
inclusive and sustainable community.



In the Delaware-Maryland Synod, Young Adults practice their call to discipleship in a supportive, inclusive and sustainable community made in the image of God. This community is called Practice Discipleship. Practice Discipleship is a ministry with many gifts aiming to be the hands and feet of God throughout Delaware, Maryland and the world!

We do this by creating space for intentional and purposeful relationships grounded in Christ, who teaches us to:

We offer up brave space to explore together what it means to be the people of God and we discern our call to discipleship by listening to each other, to the needs of the world, and to God.

Practice Discipleship is a ministry of the Delaware Maryland Synod of the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America)



Gathering Together

Feb 21 @ 7pm - Feb 23 @ 1pm

God is active in our lives, our communities, and the world; are we paying attention? How do we hear God’s call in our lives? How do we respond to God’s call? At the Young Adult Retreat, we'll do just that in a relaxed setting so you can learn, recharge, and reconnect.

The theme this year is: Peace and Conflict.

Please fill out this evaluation form after the retreat.

Weekly Small Groups during Lent (Feb 26-April 10)

What's a huddle? It's a small group of about 6-10 people who gather together on a weekly basis to consider what it means to practice our discipleship as Christians. Huddles last about an hour and can discuss books, podcasts, build relationships, and study scripture together. Let us know if you're interested by clicking below!
