Updated – The Pastors Conference has been changed to a virtual event.
Due to planning, timing and many additional factors, including consideration of congregational finances, the decision was made to hold our Fall Pastoral Conference virtually in 2021. The theme of our conference is intended to be missional: “Serving a Changeless Christ Amidst a Changing World.”
Things like COVID, political struggles, racial tensions and secularization plague the world, Hebrews 13:8 reminds us, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever!” Our goal is to inspire, challenge and encourage our pastors in a rapidly changing cultural milieu to stand strong in Jesus. As ministries seem to struggle we want them to thrive and not just survive.
The team has planned a one day conference for Tuesday, September 21, 2021, and our featured speaker is Dr. Ed Stetzer, who is the Billy Graham Distinguished Chair of Church, Mission, and Evangelism at Wheaton College and Executive Director of the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College.
There will be breakout opportunities presented by well-known leaders from throughout the Synod. Registration and schedule information will be coming this summer.
