Help challenged churches plan for their future

Dear Friend,

The upcoming WELS National Conference on Lutheran Leadership has a track of presentations (like this one) designed to help congregations that are facing the prospect of closing. These congregations will come out of the conference with a simple ministry plan that will address their challenges and they will be capable of executing.

Typically, congregations cover the registration costs for some leaders to attend this conference. However, not all of our challenged congregations can afford that. So, WELS Congregational Services is providing grants to congregations in need. With many congregations interested, we invite your help.

Every $250 donated allows one individual to attend. That person will take planning and training resources back to their congregation, so that, with the strength God himself provides, members can be refreshed to zealously share the message of salvation through Jesus in their communities.

Please consider donating today to help provide these grants. Thank you.

In Christ,
Jonathan Hein
Coordinator, WELS Congregational Services

PS: You are invited to attend the conference. The discounted early registration deadline has been extended to November 23. I hope to have the chance to meet you!
