Annual Conference


Join us for the LOM Annual Conference, which is held each fall. The annual conference is a gathering of LOM members and features continuing education, networking, fellowship, and time for renewal.  This year’s annual conference will be held on November 6-10, 2017, at Beaver Run Resort in Breckenridge, Colorado.

Gather with outdoor ministry professionals, speakers and leaders to dive into the theme of “Living Into Reformation: Practicing Relevant Faith”. Together we will explore our theme verse, “Now the Lord is the spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom” (2 Cor. 3: 17). Join in conversation about reforming, restoring and refocusing our ministry practices, in the freedom of the Spirit, to engage in relevant, Christ centered ministry in today’s world. Keynote speakers include the Rev. CeCee Mills (African Descent Ministries, ELCA), the Rev. Hans Wiersma (Augsburg University) and Beth Schwartz with Coca Cola.  The conference schedule allows for plenty of time for discussion with peers in ministry, as well as dynamic worship and fellowship.
