Manly Man’s Breakfast and Other Delights Await You at the BJS Annual Conference, by Pr. Rossow

Serving line at Manly Man's Breakfast 2011

We have a lot of fun and eat a lot of animal flesh at the BJS conference and this is no better exemplified than at our Manly Man’s Breakfast (see pictures below). The bacon, sausage, eggs and other carnivorous cutlets also make it easier for the carb counters in the crowd to enjoy a great meal.

Manly Man's Breakfast, 2011

We enjoyed the flaming cherries jubilee last February but after a year of finer foods celebrating the presence of synod President Matt Harrison last year, this year we are returning to our more traditional, grunt-grunt, manly cuisine. Registrants will enjoy  our Chicago pizza banquet on Friday night, the manly man’s breakfast on Saturday morning, and Chicago style hot dogs, cheese fries and chili for lunch on Saturday. All of this plus snacks and a travel snack bag to take away are included in the modest conference registration.

Enjoying the Breakfast

Don’t forget that even though BJS is primarily a mens’ group, we have several women members and every year the conference has many ladies in attendance. We also provide child care for a nominal fee to help fathers and mothers attend the conference.

Registrations are starting to come in. We hope you will join us for this years great food and a fine buffet of young buck speakers (Fisk, Wolfmueller, and Scheer), the preached Word of God from Revs. Kind (ULC) and Messer and of course the banquet feast of the Lord’s Supper served with rich and authentic Lutheran liturgy.

  1. Looking forward to the conference Tim. I hope many of the brothers at St. Paul’s Lockport will be there.

  2. Mark,

    They are usually the largest contingent next to Bethany, Naperville. You have a great bunch of godly, confessional men! See you in a few weeks or at symposia if you are there this week.

  3. Excellent cuisine choices this year – my wife, a Chicago native is delighted to hear that we can sample Chicago once again before coming home to the place where the buffalo roam (did I mention deer and antelope?)!

  4. Am wondering if the audio/video will be broadcast via internet this year as well. I live in Maryland and am no able to attend.

  5. Aaargh! I want so badly to come from up here in Canada-land, with my wife in tow this time, but unless money drops from Heaven, I don;t see how it will be possible. ;-(

  6. My wife Julie and I have signed up (Sat. morning) and look forward to driving over to Naperville for the conference and then on to Watertown WI to see our son Erik, who is attending Luther Preparatory School as a high school freshman. Looking forward to meeting people and learning more about witnessing with technology tools by the “young bucks”.

  7. I registered today. My wife Sarah, our daughter Evelyn, and I will be coming out a day early so that we can enjoy some time in Chicago. Sarah has never been up into the downtown skyscrapers before, so we’re heading up the Hancock Tower Thursday morning, followed by a trip up into Wrigleyville, with dinner at Portillo’s later in the evening. Friday morning we’re heading over to Woodfield Mall. Sarah and Evelyn will not be coming to the conference, but they are looking forward to a nice, relaxing time in a good hotel.

    What would it cost for Sarah and Evelyn (less than a year old) to come to the breakfast Saturday morning since they aren’t registered for the conference? It would just be breakfast.
