Kristen Kuempel is the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) bishop of the Northwest Intermountain Synod, formally called the Eastern Washington-Idaho Synod. Bishop Kuempel is a the type of leader that is gaining in prominence in the ELCA and is comparable to ELCA pastors Nadia Bolz-Weber and Lura Groen. (read about them here and here) She is extremely liberal, swears freely, advocates for all the ELCA favorite social causes and will spout her politics.
Just a few months ago the ELCA bishop Tweeted a picture of a vibrator to her followers:
Bishop Kuempel lists her preferred pronouns on her Twitter account along with her love of hard liquor. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America bishop's Twitter profile says "F*bombs welcome" and has a descriptive saying predominately displayed that says "Good sense of humor, dirty mind and beautiful heart. Deadly combination."
Below are some of many troubling Tweets by the ELCA bishop:
Last year the ELCA Youth Facebook page posted the following:
The ELCA page shared a pro-LGBTQIA+ guide for ELCA youth workers to use and help them minister to their youth. The guide comes from the LGBT+ organization ReconcilingWorks.
Tuhina Verma Rasche is a highly controversial and disturbing ELCA pastor. (See here) She is a co-author of the "F#ck This Sh&t" devotional and was picked to speak at an ELCA National Youth Gathering.
In her tweet below you will see that she is very happy about the newly elected ELCA bishops and by those who are being hired to work at ELCA synods.
If Rev. Tuhina Verma Rasche is excited about the new leadership...
A recent news release about the ELCA Conference of Bishops referenced the newly elected bishops. The chair, Bishop William O. Gafkjen, said "Thanks to the work of the Holy Spirit and the wisdom of God's people, the Conference of Bishops is now more diverse in more ways than it has ever been... This is such an important gift, both because of the particular gifts and experiences each member of the conference brings and because it uncovers assumptions, challenges disparities and inequities, and calls for repentance and transformation in a church unaccustomed to such blessed diversity."

This summer Lutheran Church of the Nativity (ELCA) in North Conway, New Hampshire hosted Gay Men's Chorus. One of the lead sponsors of the event is Thrivent Financial.
Some of the money from the concert will be gifted to LGBT groups.
