All Professional Church Workers’ Conference


October 19-20, 2017
The Lincoln Marriott Cornhusker Hotel

Shaping The Future!  This year’s theme implies that we, as the leaders in our Lutheran ministries, can shape the future.  How can we do such a marvelous thing?  Isaiah 43:19 gives us the answer and focus as it declares, “Behold, I am doing a new thing.”  We want you to be shaped anew so you can go about a ministry of “Shaping The Future!”  Dan Webster will help us focus on identity and legacy with two shaped keynotes. “IDENTITY: The Leader I Want To Become!” and “LEGACY: The Mark I Want To Leave!”

You are invited to join other church workers from across the Nebraska District at this year’s All Professional Church Workers’ Conference on October 19 and 20 at The Cornhusker Hotel in Lincoln.

The Nebraska District will be combining the Fall Pastors’ Conference and Educators’ Conference in 2017 to host a conference for all church workers in the District. The conference will be held at The Lincoln Marriott Cornhusker Hotel. Registration is $130 per person and covers all conference sessions, lunch on Thursday, breakfast on Friday, and snacks. Mark your calendars and plan to attend together as a staff.

Keynotes will be given by Tim Elmore and Andrew McPeak from Growing Leaders. The LCMS Domestic Violence and Child Abuse Task Force will also present.

The conference will also include super-sectionals for select ministry groups as well as 3 smaller breakout sessions covering a wide variety of topics for ministry and education.

Registration materials will be available on this page in August.

Registration will be due on or before October 2, 2017.
