The Michigan District DCE/DFL Conference is your opportunity for a wellness check-up—spiritual, relational, emotional, physical, financial, vocational, and intellectual. DCE Jim Bradshaw and Pastor Gabe Kasper will guide us as we unpack each part of the ‘Wellness Wheel.’ Join us as we continue this much-needed conversation on Church Worker Wellness and work to create individualized strategies to help each worker to weather the…

The Katie—a Michigan District conference for the wives and widows of pastors, deacons, and vicars—seeks to uplift the women God has chosen to be His hands and heart to the men He has called into the ministry.

Have you ever felt that it is extremely difficult to motivate people? Have you struggled with discipleship and the third use of the Law in preaching? In this time of apathy in our nation and our world, we could be tempted to motivate with the Law; yet we know that only the Good News of Jesus and His gift of “lots of grace” motivates. Please join us as we hear from Rev. Dr. Justin P. Rossow and Rev. Dr. David…

“Hi, my name is Pastor _______ and I’ve lost my knowledge of Greek and Hebrew.” Given the demands of the ministry, keeping the use of the original languages intact is a definite challenge. Yet as Luther says, “Let us zealously hold to the languages … God caused his Scriptures to be set down … We will not long preserve the gospel without the languages. The languages are the sheath in which this sword of the Spirit is contained” (AE 45:359).…

"The shape and requirements of transitions today: lead, follow, or get out of the way!" Serving as an IIP today is not like it was five years ago or twenty years ago! The new contexts and post-Christendom culture demand missionary thinking and transitions in ourselves and our people that go beyond a change in pastors. Together we explore and discover the barriers and breakthroughs of God’s moving us to see Him at work anew and join Him in the process.

One of the perks of being a pastor is spending time in the Word. Yes, a lot of it is simply “work.” But can you study a pericope and NOT discover something new? And, often enough, an hour or two has suddenly gone by and we get to sit back with a smile and say with King David, “Your testimonies are my heritage forever, for they are the joy of my heart” (Psalm 119:111). Register now and plan to join…

Jesus says, “and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32). We live in a world where each individual philosophy is dropping “truth bombs:” from hair to food; from clothing to identity. It is not that young people have no truths—it is that they are faced with thousands of them. All these “truths” compete for their minds, their bodies, and even their souls. To further complicate life, Christianity is often reduced to a list…
