In Real Life (IRL) how do we share Jesus? What are the stories we share as we tell others about Jesus the Savior of all?
Rev. Dr. Tony Cook, Director for US Ministries, Lutheran Hour Ministries will be our guest speaker at this year's conference. He will help us to explore and understand the language of Millennials and Postmoderns and teach us how to share the Gospel through everyday relationships. In addition to Rev. Cook, we will be blessed with other members of the Lutheran Hour Ministries Team as they lead workshop sessions throughout the conference. Once again, a tech center and a visual faith center will be featured.
Creative Faith Center - faith illustration has become very popular and is a growing ministry into the community in many churches. We will have a dedicated space for Bible Journalers, Faithbookers, and those interested in visual faith to learn, create and explore. Workshops and mini-sessions to share how faith illustration can be used to enhance Sunday School programs, confirmation programs, connecting with your neighbors and more.
