Stewardship Philippians Conference – Milwaukee and online
April 20 | 8:30 am - 2:00 pm
The South Wisconsin District (SWD) of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS), in partnership with LCMS Stewardship Ministry, will host a hybrid Philippians Conference on April 20 from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Milwaukee.
The conference, which will be held at the SWD office and available to watch online, will be facilitated by the Rev. Dr. Nathan Meador, SWD mission executive and LCMS National Mission stewardship specialist.
What is a Philippians Conference?
The workshop is based on St. Paul’s words in Philippians 1, where we see how the leadership of the congregation is working together in the realm of stewardship.
The Philippians Conference gathers pastors and lay leaders to spend a day together looking at the theology and practice of stewardship, grounding congregational stewardship on the solid foundation of Scripture and the Confessions. The conference will also help local congregations to assess, strengthen and even change their local stewardship culture.
Attendees will get a fresh perspective on stewardship and leave the event with one or two action items to put into practice immediately at their congregation.
Who should attend?
Pastors, elders, other elected leaders and other members of the congregation are all invited to attend.
How can I participate?
Local congregation groups are encouraged to join us in person at the SWD office in Milwaukee. In-person registration is limited to only 100 attendees.
Since in-person registration is limited, congregations are also invited to host an online “watch party.” This would mean that your pastor(s), congregational leaders and members would gather at your church to participate as a group via Zoom. There will be an online moderator to ensure the presenter addresses your questions.
How much does this cost?
There is no cost to participate in this event.
How do I register?
Both in-person and online seats are limited, so register today at swd.lcms.org/hybrid. If you intend to join us in person, please be ready to register your complete list of attendees. The registration form closes on April 15.
