NWD Professional Church Workers' Conference

 Mt. Olive Lutheran Church, Weston ~ October 26, 2017

Theme:  "Thrive" - coming from John as he reminds us of his experience with God’s steadfast support,        “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly” (John 10:10b). This conference will focus on the abundant, overflowing life given to men through Jesus. We are reminded of David’s psalm singing of the “green pastures,” and “waters of rest,” and “prepared table,” and “overflowing cup”. The day will center on Mission Development for all professional church workers.

Conference Objectives - (1) to help professional church workers meet generational ministry needs, and (2) to help church professionals have the tools to engage their community.

Fees - $30 by August 31. After 8/31 the fee will be $40. Retired workers & family members - $20.                       Leadership books will be handed out to all registrants. Registration will close on October 12th.
