The 2015 LSA Annual Conference celebrates the strength of Lutheran social ministry and our network of health and human service providers, united in our call to transform lives and communities. This yearly gathering brings together hundreds of nonprofit leaders from around the U.S. to build on and celebrate LSA's national, strong and trusted network. 

Farther Together: Stronger Tomorrow  

The conference theme reflects our focus on the greater reach the LSA network can achieve both collectively and as individual organizations when we work together and leverage the power of the network. We are on a shared journey, and seek to light the path for Lutheran social ministry, so that we may bring hope to more lives- both today and in the future.
