Joshua Korotka, a teacher at St. Paul Lutheran School in Manawa, WIsc. was one of three LCEF gift card recipients at the October 2017 North Wisconsin District Professional Church Workers conference.

More than 270 professional church workers gathered on October 26, 2017 for an educational conference based upon the scripture John 10:10b. 'I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.' The conference was held at Mt. Olive Lutheran Church, Weston, Wisconsin.

"The conference focused on the abundant, overflowing life given to us through Jesus," said Lutheran Church Extension Fund North Wisconsin District Vice President Dennis Johnson.

"LCEF was blessed to help sponsor this event in appreciation of our NWD LCMS church workers." There were also three recipients of the LCEF Gift Card Giveaway; a random drawing held at the conference.

Johnson also presented LCEF resources and support opportunities. LCEF is a ministry partner with Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod professional church workers, congregations and schools. LCEF provides loan funding, investment opportunities and overall ministry support. For more information, visit lcef.org or contact Dennis.Johnson@lcef.org.

North Wisconsin District hosted the conference and focused on two educational objectives, (1) to help professional church workers meet generational ministry needs, and (2) to help church professionals have the tools to engage their community. The keynote speaker and worship leader was Travis Guse. Pastor Guse also serves as the Mission Engagement Facilitator-Central Region-Southeast District LCMS.
