Best Practices for Ministry: Heartland Conference at Cornerstone

October 11, 2023 - October 13, 2023

Make Connections at… Best Practices for Ministry: Heartland 2023!

Wednesday, Oct. 11 (3 pm) through Friday, Oct. 13 (Noon)

Location: Cornerstone Lutheran Church Carmel (4850 E. Main St., Carmel IN 46033)

With the goal of helping other congregations most effectively use their God-given gifts, Christ Lutheran Church in Phoenix, Arizona, started the Best Practices for Ministry Conference. Since it began, the conference has been presented free of charge to all who attend. Participants are greeted with warm hospitality, great speakers, and practical workshops.

The Conference has grown greatly since its start, expanding to the Midwest. In 2015, Carmel Lutheran (now Cornerstone Lutheran) brought the concept of the conference to Indiana to make it more easily accessible to more congregations “in the Heartland”. Since that time, “Best Practices for Ministry: Heartland” has also been hosted at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Columbus, Indiana, and St. Lorenz Lutheran Church in Frankenmuth, Michigan. This year, it’s back at Cornerstone!

We are excited to announce our keynote speakers: Mark Monteith, award winning sports journalist, radio host, and author; Rev. Dr. Benjamin Haupt, Associate Provost and Associate Professor at Concordia Seminary St. Louis, and his wife, Celina; and Jeff Cloeter, senior pastor at Christ Memorial Lutheran in St. Louis.

This free conference includes not just fabulous speakers and vendors, but awesome meals and activities, too. To register, visit https://cornerstonelutheran.church/bpmh. In addition to registering, you’ll be able to see the preliminary schedule, register for our 5K, and find links for hotel accommodations. We can’t wait to see you for Best Practices in Ministry: Heartland next month.
