Focusing on the theme "Preaching in Such a Time as This: Kairos, Truth, and Prophetic Gospel," the Southeastern Synod's rostered ministers and lay leaders will hold its 2019 Leadership Convocation, October 15 -17, at Lutheridge, Arden, NC.
Our keynote speaker, the Rev. Dr. Sam Giere, Wartburg Theological Seminary, will offer a series of presentations during which we will "explore the proclamation of Jesus Christ in such a time as this (Esther 4:14), by discerning 'the times,' considering the relationship of trust and truth, and engaging the prophetic nature of the gospel of Jesus Christ."
