Registrations have Started to Come in for the Second Annual BJS Conference

Registrations have already started to come in for our second annual conference. (Click here to see registration information.) We invite you to join us in February for another excellent opportunity to hear confessional speakers, sing and speak traditional liturgies (Vespers and the Divine Service) and maybe most importantly, enjoy plenty of time for dining together and being edified by mutual conversation and consolation of the confessional brothers and sisters.

You do not need to be a member of the Brothers to attend. The conference is open to all those interested in being built up in or learning more about confessional Lutheranism.

We have a great line up of speakers, what we are calling “The Fired and the Staff”   (a word play on Klemet Preus’ popular book “The Fire and the Staff”).  Two of our “staff” bloggers,  Mollie Ziegler Hemingway and Klemet Preus,  will be speaking and “the fired one,” Todd Wilken also be addressing the conference-goers.

As far as we know, this is the first time that people will have a chance to hear Mollie formally address her life as a writer and her involvement in supporting Issues, Etc. through the years including the difficult days when the synod fired Todd Wilken (show host) and Jeff Scwharz (producer). You can click hereto see registration information.

  1. Jim,
    Would love info on lodging as well. I have the Comfort Inn & Suites, 6 & some miles out, but rather a straight shot. Any other suggestions?

  2. I stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott last time–pricier, but if you can get a good deal, it’s clean and comfortable.
    A large variety of hotels can be found on Diehl Rd, just south of the tollway in Naperville.
    And, I think these are also some of the closer ones.

  3. HB,

    Yes, the Diehl Road hotels are all nice. they are a bit far from the church (3 miles?) and one has to travel through the often times busy Naperville downtown. (BTW – the chocolate bar closed so we will have to come up another indulgence for our list of parties.)

    I am working with Staybridge and Super 8. The Super 8 is the closest and the cheapest and it is more of a hotel and not a motel. It is fairly new and is clean and is only a mile from church, a straight shot down 75th St.

    I will have more info on the rates next week. Super 8 will probably be around $60 for a single. It is the Aurora/Naperville Super 8 if anyone is interested.
