Augustana District Theological Conference
On Sunday February 3rd, members of the LCMC Augustana District gathered to watch the Super Bowl prior to the theological conference commencing the next day. The theme of the AD conference this year was “Theology is for Proclamation,” taken from Gerhard Forde’s important book. While the poor weather conditions kept a few people away, there was a good crowd gathered at the event. It was wonderful to meet with the alumni, students, board members, and donors who attended the event.
Announcement from ILT
At the last Executive Committee Meeting of the Board of Directors of the Institute of Lutheran Theology, the Committee authorized a change of title for Mr. Leon Miles from "Comptroller" to "Executive Vice President." The committee feels strongly that Leon was doing the work of an Executive Vice President of ILT, particularly as Dr. Dennis Bielfeldt's workload has increased in academics because of his work implementing the new Ph.D. program. Congratulations to Leon for this well-deserved acknowledgement of his gifts and commitment to the Institute of Lutheran Theology.
