|Three things to bring to your attention:
1. The current NALIP training schedule is on our website. The Basic Education for Intentional Interim Ministry classes currently are scheduled for the NorthEast Ohio Synod at Stow, Ohio and Concordia Seminary in St. Louis in April and the East Central Synod of Wisconsin in September. The annual training at Luther Seminary will start October 29. Registration information about each of these venues is on the NALIP website. Please share this information with others you think have interest and skills for intentional interim ministry. We will add information on our website about other training sites as soon as they are finalized. Meanwhile, if you think your synod or district might be interested in hosting a training event, contact the NALIP office.
2. The NALIP annual conference information is on our website. Consider attending this great annual event. We will meet June 21-22 at the Sheraton Westport Hotel, St Louis, MO. Join us and presenter Dr. Israel Galindo as we explore the theme: Perspectives on Congregational Leadership. The Conference Planning Committee is working on the final details of the conference. We look forward to another successful gathering. Book your room early to insure the conference hotel rate.
3. The future of NALIP will be a topic of discussion at the conference. At the 2017 conference the annual meeting directed the Coordinating Council to move forward to implement the recommendations of the Membership and Governance Task Force. This year we will seek final approval of the process and lay out remaining details for the changes in name, membership and other details.
Thanks for your interest in Intentional interim Ministry.
