We know that we are experiencing a time of upheaval and change greater than any in recent memory. Issues like a global pandemic, social unrest, and deeply polarizing politics are placing a heavy burden on churches and their leaders to respond faithfully. This often can lead to an increasingly inward focus or even ministry paralysis when it comes to meeting community needs with the mission of Christ. Rev. Dr. Tod Bolsinger, author of the popular book Canoeing the Mountains, defines the type of leadership necessary for this uncharted territory as “energizing a community of people toward their own transformation in order to accomplish a shared mission in the face of a changing world.” Join Dr. Bolsinger and an amazing group of leaders as we convene Mission West, an online Mission Conference October 17, 2020. This event is a partnership between the three west coast Districts of the LCMS, and will be offered FREE. It’s our prayer that socially distanced gatherings of leaders from across our region will tune in from 11:00am – 3:00 pm on Saturday October 17th as we engage real issues of public health, social justice, and government interaction with innovative and missional responses.
Keynote Speaker: Rev. Dr. Tod Bolsinger - Author of Canoeing the Mountains: Christian Leadership in Uncharted Territory; Vice President and Chief of Leadership Formation at Fuller Seminary.
