Deacon/Ministry Assistant Conference 2020

Conference for Deacons, Ministry Assistants, Students and SMP Pastors

September 14, 2020 - September 15, 2020

The Deacon/MAP Continuing Education Conference at Camp Arcadia, September 14-15, is a “GO” in some way, shape, or form. While we still don’t have all of the details, we want you to register right now. The $50 non-refundable registration fee will get your name on the list of attendees and give you access to all materials and continuing education requirements (after completing a brief evaluation). After August 1, all those who are registered will receive further information on costs and conference schedule. You will then be able to choose whether to participate in person or virtually. We look forward to seeing you in September.

Rev. Dr. John Sproul

Rev. Dr. John Sproul, senior pastor at St. Luke, Ann Arbor, has been in ministry for 32 years. He grew up as a member of Atonement, Dearborn, where his love for worship was conceived. He graduated from Concordia University Ann Arbor and Concordia Theological Seminary in St. Catharines, Ontario, and has served five congregations around the country, ranging from a mission congregation of 350 to a missional church with 4,000 in worship. In every congregation, he has composed and led both traditional and emerging worship, the latter as worship leader on guitar. He earned a D.Min. in Christian Worship in 2006 under the tutelage of Robert Webber, a prolific author who advocated an “ancient-future” approach to worship. Sproul and his wife Linda have four children.


Registration is now open.
