As leaders in the Rocky Mountain Synod, we find ourselves at a crossroads: What does it mean to be the church? What is the future of our ministries? What is the future of our synod?
How do we manage the full spectrum of ministry, remain healthy leaders, and continue to be inspired to tell God's love story?
This year's Theological Conference will explore these questions and more.
