The 2019 Canadian Rockies Theological Conference will be held April 30 through May 3 at the Coast Canmore Hotel and Conference Centre in Canmore, Alberta — just outside of Banff National Park.
This year’s theme is “The World Following Christ: The Lutheran Catechism as a resource for life and witness in parish, home and beyond.”
Featured speakers are the Rev. Larry Vogel and the Rev. Dr. Nathan Yoder.
Pastor Vogel will talk about how the catechisms may be used as a guide for following Jesus, as a devotional resource and as a tool for evangelism.
Pastor Yoder will explore the marks of Christian discipleship from a Lutheran perspective.

He has been a pastor for 37 years and He recently served on the drafting committee for the 2017 edition of Luther’s Small Catechism with Explanation from Concordia Publishing House.
