2019 LEA Convocation
October 10, 2019 - October 12, 2019
This thirteenth triennial convocation provides professional growth, worship, and fellowship opportunities designed for educators in Lutheran schools and other educational agencies at all levels.
The convocation theme is inspired by the text of Herbert Brokering’s Easter hymn, “Alleluia! Jesus is Risen” (LSB 474), where phrases such as “telling the story,” “opening eyes,” “constant surprise,” “gift of the future,” and “walking the way” dominate inspirational thought.
Lutheran school educators are in the business of opening minds, both to the wonders, intricacies, blessings, and perils of all that science, social studies, mathematics, the arts, and religious studies have to offer. They must wrap all of these in a scripturally supported and Christian worldview. While secular-based education often closes minds to Scripture and Spirit-given faith, Lutheran school educators must open minds to the truth. They students and teachers alike must learn how to express their faith and knowledge in what they say, think, and do—all to the glory of God.
Registration fees will be announced later, and schools are invited to set aside funding through the Convocation Deposit Option plan. Hotel rates at six nearby hotels are locked in at $139.00 per room per night and one hotel at $155.00 per room per night.
