NEXUS Institute @ Grand View University
Jul 7 – Jul 12 all-day

The NEXUS Institute is a week of theological training for high school students each summer at Grand View University in Des Moines, Iowa. Led by NALC faculty, the week is designed to engage deeper thinking high school students in theology and hands on service. Because of a Lilly Grant, there is no charge for the experience from the time the student arrives in Des Moines until the time they leave the experience. Nominate students by January 1, 2019, or as soon as possible, as space is limited.

Lutheran Week @ The Westin Indianapolis
Aug 5 – Aug 9 all-day

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_single_image image=”32985″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Every year, the North American Lutheran Church gathers for Lutheran Week! The week is more than a conference, more than a church festival and much more than a business meeting. The NALC Lutheran Week is all of that and more!

This year’s theme is Walking by the Spirit with the Fruit of the Spirit.

“But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

— Galatians 5:16-23

The events of Lutheran Week will include the annual Ventures in Youth Ministry Symposium, Women of the NALC Gathering, Carl E. Braaten-Robert D. Benne Lectures in Theology, Mission Festival and Convocation.

Rev. Melinda Jones

Session Leader

[/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]Rev. Melinda H. Jones serves as pastor of Advent Evangelical Lutheran Church in North Charleston, SC. Along with the joy of ordained ministry to Word and Sacrament, Pastor Jones ministers to her parish neighborhood which is in the most urban, economically challenged area of the “Low Country.” Homelessness, alcoholism, drugs, human trafficking and poverty are some of the scars on those to whom Advent witnesses; Pastor Jones works with the sherrif’s office, the attorney general’s Office, and other local agencies to help bring awareness and the hope of combatting the suffering in this environment.

Pastor Jones is secretary of the Executive Council of the North American Lutheran Church, which has afforded her opportunities to visit many NALC congregations. For the past nine years, she led and taught annual women’s retreats in Rincon, GA for Lutheran congregations in the NALC, LCMC and ELCA.

Pastor Jones and her husband (Jim) of twenty-eight years live in Summerville, SC along with their two teenage sons (Jade and Vasa).[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″]
