Home > Pastors’ Conference 2021

Join us May 4-6, 2021 in San Antonio, Texas for our annual Pastors’ Conference. The theme is “Keeping the Main Things the Main Things.” The conference will focus on the scope of Lutheranism and sacramental theology. Other conference highlights: appointments with NALC staff, meeting of the NALC Ministerium, Holy Communion service with the renewal of ordination vows and blessing of oil, dedicated time of networking and encouragement with fellow pastors.

Although this conference is designed for NALC pastors and seminarians, other NALC leaders are welcome, as are non-NALC pastors and seminarians. Clergy spouses are welcome and encouraged to attend, but are asked to register so adequate arrangements can be made.

The registration fee is $75. Breakfast and evening appetizers will be provided each day for attendees. (If you are an NALC seminarian, your registration fee will be waived. Please call 888-551-7254 to register.)

The event will be held at the Drury Plaza Hotel San Antonio Riverwalk. Make your hotel reservation below.

We will begin Tuesday, May 4 at 8:00 a.m. (registration will open at 7:30 a.m.) and will conclude Thursday, May 6 at noon.
