Join us at the Fall Teaching Conference to be refreshed and encouraged by the teaching of Scott Manetsch, chair of the Church History & History of Christian Thought department at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

Scott will share lessons from Martin Luther’s life challenges and ministry including his experiences with the plague, struggles with church authority, wrestling with personal calling, and standing for the Gospel.

If any of this sounds familiar, make plans to join your fellow pastors and church leaders as Dr. Manetsch offers biblical wisdom through the eyes of Luther. We’ll meet at Camp Shamineau where you’ll also be able to renew old relationships, start new ones, and relax while being spiritually and intellectually fed.
