Yes, it is happening in our Indiana District! DOXOLOGY, a premier resource for education and encouragement within our LCMS, is hosting two programs within our district. This RSO offers programs across the country, but this year we have them offered “locally”!
On September 30th, at St. Michael’s Lutheran Church, Fort Wayne, Dr. John Kleinig with Dr. Scott Bruzek will be giving a one day seminar. This seminar is entitled “Generosity”, and will focus on aspects of stewardship.

Additionally, in Donaldson, Indiana, (Lindenwood Retreat & Conference Center near Plymouth IN) the DOXOLOGY Classic Training in advanced skills for pastoral care will kick off its presentations November 4-7. They summarize: “Our primary purpose is to provide training in advanced pastoral skills while offering ongoing spiritual care opportunities for Lutheran pastors. Participants will be refreshed and equipped as a result of their participation in a program of soul care grounded in Holy Scripture and the Lutheran Confessions. The Classic program provides an excellent setting for clergy to reflect on their own spiritual health and offers a curriculum carefully crafted to help them review and enhance their professional competencies and skills. The DOXOLOGY Classic program strengthens pastors so they can more faithfully pastor others.”
If desired, one lay leader per pastor and the pastor’s wife can also be informed and encouraged during a 3-day portion of the program designed for them.
