We have been asked to share with you that the Regional LCMC Conflict Resolution Workshop scheduled for June 7-8 in Fremont, Nebraska has been cancelled due to the low number of registrations.  It is our hope that this important topic can be addressed at a future district event. 

LCMC Iowa District Council

The LCMC Ministry Board is announcing in place of a leadership conference, conflict resolution workshops will be held regionally throughout the United States.

Workshops will be led by LCMC Coordinator for Pastoral Ministry Perry Fruhling, a trained facilitator for Peter Steinke’s Healthy Congregations and has a variety of training in conflict resolution and family systems. 

As we continue to grow as an association, it is vital for our congregations to become healthy in how we relate to one another and resolve conflict.  Perry will present information on emotional systems as they relate to congregational health. 

Pastors, leaders and all members of LCMC congregations are invited to attend these one-day workshops, which will take place March 16 – October 19in various locations throughout the U.S.

The Iowa and Heartland Districts will be hosting a regional conference June 7- 8, 2019 at Peace Lutheran Church in Fremont, Nebraska. Registration is free but we ask for pre-registration for planning.

For more information about this regional conference, contact Jon Rollefson or Steve Weatherly.
