If you've already registered and need to make a change to your or your voting member's registration, please email Susan Barton-Nonno at or call 614.464.3532, ext 5. Once a registration is entered, it can only be altered by an administrator. I'm happy to update names, housing, or anything else.

Don't have your voting members names yet? Just register them under any generic name, like Lay Female and Lay Male and use the congregation's address and email as their contact information. I can put in the real names of your voting members later so you don't have to register your folks on site and pay the higher fees!

Registration closing for Assembly on May 17! Register now!

The 2019 Southern Ohio Synod Assembly takes place on June 7-8 at the HPER Center, 250 Bill Edwards Drive, Wittenberg University, in Springfield, Ohio. Our theme for assembly is Stronger and Better Together: On the way. Our focus scripture is Luke 24:13-24. We are delighted to welcome our ELCA representative, The Rev.
