Campus Ministry Leadership Conference 2017


Join LCMA for the 2017 Campus Ministry Leadership Conference, February 10-11, hosted by the campus ministry of Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, Indiana! CMLC speakers share insights about campus and mainstream culture, disciple-building, peer ministry and outreach—all in a distinctive grassroots setting. Student groups plan and lead icebreakers, devotional times and an idea-sharing session; the CMLC praise band is recruited through Facebook and meets for the first time when they arrive onsite! Plus: there’s plenty of time for great fellowship and networking.
