Featuring The Rev. Mark Hanson,
Former Presiding Bishop of the ELCA

“Serving the Gospel for Such a Time as This”

We … need to disengage for a time, to be consciously in God’s presence, to regain perspective, to pray for discernment and strength to move back out in the world with new vision, courage and strength.

Rev. Mark S. Hanson
“Faithful and Courageous: Christians in Unsettling Times”


The 2018 Bishop’s Theological Conference hopes to be just such a time for all who gather.

Under the theme, “Serving the Gospel in a Time Such as This,” we will explore the personal dimensions of ministry – the inner work we are called to do. We will explore the contextual dimensions of ministry – what we notice about changes in the world around us, about God’s presence, about the “hermeneutic” we bring to contextual study. And, we will explore the public dimension of ministry – our work of proclamation, service, and prophetic engagement.
