Every congregation has members who, for a variety of reasons, have become less involved in worship and other congregational activities.  One of the important themes of this event will be on building and strengthening relationships with inactive members as an important part of the mission work that the Lord calls and enables us to do.  This "Engaging the Wandering" workshop is intended for pastors and 3-4 lay leaders to attend together so that they may return to their congregation with some practical approaches on engaging and reaching their inactive members with the Gospel.

Registration for these events is through LCMS Rural and Small Town Mission.
