BJS Newsreel: BJS Conference Keeps Getting Better – President’s Sr. Assistant and Former Commission on Worship Assistant Director Jon Vieker to Chant Evening Prayer
It’s not too late to sign up for the annual BJS Conference. LCMS President Senior Assistant Jon Vieker will be making the trip up from St. Louis with President Harrison and will grace the conference by chanting our Evening Prayer service after the banquet on Friday night.
The Brothers of John the Steadfast (BJS) are in the third year of annual conferences. This year’s conference is once again being held in the midwest at Bethany Lutheran Church and School – Naperville, Illinois, convenient for auto travel and centrally located between O’Hare and Midway airports. The conference is Friday and Saturday, February 11-12. The highlight of the conference will be President Harrison’s banquet address on Friday night. The presentations on Saturday are based on the three emphases of the Harrison administration for the coming years: Witness, Mercy and Life Together.
We are pleased to have Rev. Jon Vieker chanting our worship on Friday evening. Rev. Vieker served as the Assistant Director for the LCMS Commission on Worship from 1998 until last year when he was chosen by President Harrison to be his Senior Assistant. Rev. Vieker is an accomplished cantor, editor and composer. His worship leadership at the conference will enhance the already rich variety of tradition and excellence that BJS conference music director, Cantor Phillip Magness provides for the conference goers each year.
