Moser Ministry Title

Wilderness

October 2-3, 2017

“Wilderness” is a prevalent theme throughout Scripture and the entire history of God’s people. The word evokes a host of images, stories, memories, and responses. This year we will focus together on the theme of “wilderness”, especially in connection with the practice of ministry. We have four presenters who each bring a unique perspective to our theme given their life experiences. Please join us as we consider this shadow side of ministry, an arid place in which springs occasionally and surprisingly emerge: Wilderness.

If you have any questions, contact Jeff Cary at 806.720.7667 or jeff.cary@lcu.edu.
