Formerly known as Clergy Day, the September 15-16 School for Ministry is a chance to learn from ELCA pastor Gordon Lathrop and be inspired by worship leader Carolin Spragg, biblical storyteller and retired pastor from the West Michigan Conference. Click here to learn more about Gordon and Carolin. The theme for the event is “Imagine Worship Anew: Reflecting on Worship, Preaching, and the Sacramental Imagination” and will focus on the centrality of worship and the importance of preaching for equipping people to live their discipleship for the transformation of the world. All clergy leaders in the Wisconsin Conference are expected to attend for learning and sharing. We also welcome and encourage retired clergy to join us. An optional golf outing will precede the event. Register by August 29, 2016 by visiting Click here to download a flyer to share.
