Registration Closes March 18th

We live in an anxious world. We lead stressed out, overworked, flocks. Yet, when we lead and love people we are called to be the least stressed person in the room. To be patient, kind, understanding, and as loving as our Savior is. For the sake of God’s people we must be present and not overwhelmed but knowing that and doing that can be challenging. This year our theme is “Boldly Peaceful.” We want to equip and encourage our Elders and Ministers to be a people of peace as we live in an unpeaceful world. We hope you can join us!!
