The 2019 Fall Pastor’s Conference is scheduled for October 7-9 under the theme: “Your Kingdom Come: A Study of Zechariah.” Our primary speaker for this conference will be Dr. Reed Lessing. Our esteemed guest will share biblical and practical insights from his forthcoming CPH commentary on Zechariah. In addition to going through the main passages in the book, participants will see how relevant Zechariah is when it comes to preaching, pastoral leadership, outreach and restoring broken lives. And the Christology in the book is amazing! As an added bonus, pastors will receive a complete, ready-to-use Lenten series—complete with sermons, orders of worship and Bible Study. In addition, we will have Rev. Brent Smith with us from Mission Central. We will also have a session with synodical representatives from the LCMS Rural & Small Town Mission. They will share about the array of resources available to help support your local congregation. The story of the rural and small-town LCMS church and community is rich and diverse, but often misunderstood, even by our very own church body. The fee for the conference is $125.00. Registration deadline is Friday, September 27.
Wives will again have the opportunity to get together socially with a wine tour at Drumlin Winery in Waunakee.
The venue for this year’s event will be at the Marriott Madison West 1313 John Q Hammons Drive, Middleton.
