One Michigan One Mission – CANCELLED

Professional Church Workers' Conference

October 14, 2020 - October 16, 2020
Lansing, MI

After careful consideration, the joint conference committee made a decision to cancel the One Michigan One Mission Conference scheduled for October 14-16, 2020. The conference committee based the decision upon the uncertainty of large gatherings and the safety of participants.

Despite not being able to come together in person this fall, we are still committed to your professional growth and development. Stay-tuned on details for virtual professional learning opportunities from both MANS and Michigan District, LCMS. Please refer to the events tab on m-a-n-s.org and michigandistrict.org for 2020-2021 opportunities.

Please know that we have been and will continue to pray for all of you as we continue to face uncertain times together moving forward in prayer, trusting in our Heavenly Father.
