LEAD 2019 (Leadership, Education & Development Day)
Saturday March 9 from 8:30 am – 3:30 pm
at Evangelical Lutheran Church, 315 Main Street – Mount Horeb
Building Beloved Community was the theme for this year’s Leadership Education and Development Day! Over 325 lay leaders, pastors and deacons from over 100 congregations and worshipping communities participated.
Our keynote speaker was Rev. Dr. Stephen Bouman, Former Executive Director of the Domestic Mission Unit of the ELCA. His keynote, “Three Roads to Beloved Community” drew us into communal conversation about what we seek in our own lives of discipleship, in the life of our communities of Jesus, and our impact in the world. We shared ideas and were inspired about forming leaders and communities that connect to the life of the world God loves. All were grounded in deeply meaningful biblical texts that showed us the three roads to Beloved Community.
