We are excited to welcome rostered leaders & professional youth workers and their families back to Green Lake Conference Center for the Fall Theological Conference.  We have two fabulous key note speakers lined-up to nourish your minds and souls, and Green Lake offers you many ways to spend your free time nourishing your body, mind, and soul.  Families are welcome (childcare is provided)!  Please join us for a time set apart in a place set apart!

Guest Speakers Dr. Sarah Drummond, author of “Holy Clarity: The Practice of Planning and Evaluating” & Dr. Rolf Jacobson, Associate Professor of Old Testament at Luther Seminary, contributing author of the Handbook series, and co-author of the No Experience Necessarybible studies.  Dr. Jacobson will be discussing: “Leading Christian Communities in the Post-Christendom Era” (Or, “Using a Buggy Whip to Try to Start a Car”). Seminaries, like all professional schools, are houses of “best practices.”  Best practices are developed and then passed on to the next generation of professionals.  But most of the best practices taught in seminary were developed for a world that no longer exists.  Professor Jacobson will invite attendees to think about how the world around the church has changed and to wonder together what a faithful response from Lutheran communities might include.
