Announcing the 2012 Intrepid Lutherans Conference: "Church and Continuity"

Greetings Dear Reader!

It has been two years in coming, but we are finally announcing the very first annual Intrepid Lutherans conference.

2012 Intrepid Lutherans Conference:

Church and Continuity

Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Oshkosh, WI
June 1st and 2nd

Registration cost: $25

On Friday evening, June 1st, we’ll be hosting a dinner, with Rev. Robert Koester (WELS) giving an after-dinner presentation entitled, Adelphos: Discerning Bible Translations.” The cost for the dinner is included in the registration fee.

Then all day Saturday, June 2nd, we will gather for worship and presentations. These are the themes and the speakers we have lined up for Saturday:
  • “What Has Brought Us Here?” Historical overview of the past 30 years in WELS and current issues, moderator – Rev. Steven Spencer (WELS); panel – Mr. Brian Heyer, Mr. Rick Techlin, and other area WELS laymen.
  • “Why Is This Happening to Us?” How the culture wars have become religious wars among us, Mr. Douglas Lindee (WELS).
  • “The Consequences of Church Growth Theology” What it is, where it is, and why it is dangerous, Rev. Luke Boehringer (WELS).
  • “The Beauty of the Western Rite” How the complete Divine Liturgy fulfills the spiritual needs of our Pastors and people, Rev. Michael Berg (WELS).
  • “Do We Want to Be Dresden Lutherans?” What it means to be tied to the Book of Concord rather than just to church body, school, family, or ministerium, Rev. Paul Rydecki (WELS).
The cost of the entire conference, including Friday dinner, Saturday continental breakfast and lunch, is $25 per person.

Any and all are welcome!

We're counting on our readers to help us advertize the conference in your congregations and districts. We hope you're as excited about it as we are!

Promotional posters and brochures will be forthcoming. Stay tuned for more information!

Your Intrepid brothers,
Mr. Brian Heyer
Rev. Paul Lidtke
Mr. Douglas Lindee
Rev. Paul Rydecki
Rev. Steve Spencer

Will there there be assistive listening devices available?

Bethlehem is equipped with a Williams assistive listening system. We have four units. We are in the process of adding a hearing loop, though it may not be installed by the time of the conference.

There doesn't seem to be a timeline, for each section. Would it be possible to list?

An agenda will be available online shortly. We promise!

It would appear, when paying, it only lists 1 as a default. Not a bad thing, but I need to pay for more than 1. How can I do that?

Please just register for the second person or have them register as you did. That should work just fine.

Thank you for your support!

Any chance these lectures will be available online after the conference? Wish I could attend!
