Presenters are needed to lead sectionals at the second synodwide “Training and Equipping Conference for Prison and Jail Ministry,” planned for Sept. 29-30 in St. Louis.
The conference is designed to acquaint participants with “proven models of pastoral and lay prison and jail visitation” and to equip them to train others who are interested in establishing or supporting such visitation programs. It is being planned in response to Res. 6-05, adopted at the 2010 LCMS convention, that asks the Synod to sponsor such a conference prior to the next LCMS convention in 2013.
To submit a proposal to serve as a presenter at the 2012 conference, contact Deaconess Sandy Bowers at 618-234-4767, ext. 55, or firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submitting proposals is Jan. 6.
