2016 Leadership Conference

Thank You!

Thanks to all those who attended our 2016 LSTC Leadership Conference and Distinguished Alumni/ae Awards.

2016 LSTC Leadership Conference and
Distinguished Alumni/ae Awards

October 11-13, 2016

Public church includes the congregation and all the mission we do together in the world around us. We are called to do public church together. We are better together.

Come learn from an eclectic group of public church leaders who are national leaders for young adults, refugee resettlement, charity, and advocacy. You will gain a network of powerful women leaders while you discover actionable steps for engaging people in ministry to make a difference in the world. Build community with friends and alumni at the alumni/ae dinner on Tuesday night as you enjoy music by Rachel Kurtz. On Wednesday night, celebrate the 2016 LSTC Distinguished Alumni/ae at an awards presentation and reception.
