Join hundreds of Lutheran social ministry leaders for our biggest event of the year as we come together to celebrate LSA's national, strong and trusted network. Called by our shared heritage and mission, we are growing the future of Lutheran social ministry and honoring those we serve.
This year's conference – Coming Together: Building the Path, Shining the Light – reflects on our strong network. Together, we are building the future for Lutheran social ministry, and lighting the way so that we may bring hope to more lives, as well as build awareness of the work of our diverse network of members.
Attendees benefit from best practices, thought leadership, strategies and resources presented by an impressive line-up of experts from across the public, private and nonprofit sectors, including our keynoters Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International; Jonathan Lever, VP for Health Strategy & Innovation, YMCA of the USA (Y-USA); and Dr. Kathryn Edin, author and Bloomberg Distinguished Professor of Sociology at Johns Hopkins University.
We equip conference participants with real-world innovation case studies and successful examples from people within and outside our network who have shaped their industries and communities.
One of the most powerful aspects of the Conference is the connections made, renewed and strengthened through our strong network of active Lutheran social ministry leaders, united by our shared mission, values and heritage.
