Several WELS pastors from across the country gathered together last week at an ecumenical conference (but they didn't pray with 'em).
These WELS pastors sat at the feet of nationally known Church Growth gurus including Rick Warren and Ed Stetzer.
People like to shout out that we won't let Leonard Sweet preach to us at WLC. Since the growth leaders can't come to WELS colleges the cutting edge pastors visit these national seminars.
If you want further details about the wonderful ideas presented at this conference contact a pastor at the local WELS congregation in Maitland, FL, or your own local church planting WELS pastor.
