Emmaus Conference
Parkland, WA

Parkland Lutheran Church
120 123rd St S, Tacoma, WA 98444
Theme: Shepherd the Flock that is Among You
For this, our final Emmaus Conference, we have asked the three presidents of the old Synodical Conference to return one more time and present on an essential part of the Church, the pastoral office. As the presidents of their respective synods, they are pastors to pastors and congregations, and administrators of institutions. All of them have served as pastors of congregations. They know the challenges the Church faces both from the local congregational perspective as well as the larger synodical scene. They know the challenges that come from inside sinful man, from laity and called workers, from educational institutions which are maintained in order to raise up the next generations in the Church. They also know the challenges from outside the Church, from society in general, from governments (local, state, and national), etc.
