Annual Conference Session 2022

The session was held June 8-11, La Vista Conference Center in La Vista, Nebraska

The theme, "Reimagine Discipleship," is particularly important in this season of resetting our ministry baselines and relaunching with new missional energy and imagination for who we are called to be in the world as God’s people. In an effort to have rich and vibrant discussions about what that reimagining looks like for our mission fields, the Great Plains clergy and laity met in one physical space. Read a short summary of the conference.
