BJS Newsreel: BJS Conference Registration Deadline Approaching – Harrison as Banquet Speaker and Presentations on His Threefold Emphasis
The deadline for registering for the BJS banquet and conference is midnight Sunday, February 6. The conference is being held at Bethany Lutheran Church and School in Naperville, Illinois in the western Chicago suburbs.
The headliner for the conference is President Harrison’s banquet presentation on Friday night. It is possible to buy tickets for the banquet only ($20). The conference continues on Saturday with three presentations on President Harrison’s threefold emphasis on the church: witness, mercy and life together.
The conference has become well known for its richand varied liturgical worship. There is also a manly man’s breakfast on Saturday morning as well as a hearty lunch on Saturday featuring homemade soups and Italian beef sandwiches. As if that weren’t enough, dessert for Friday night’s banquet will be an “ablazing” flaming cherries jubilee.
There are already over 200 tickets purchased for the banquet and over 100 registrants for the conference but there is plenty of room for more.
Tickets for the entire conference, including the banquet are $50. For more details click here.
