  1. The list of speakers and topics alone shows how important this conference will be for pastors and laymen alike. I’m really not sure how clearly proper ecclesiastical supervision is being taught synodwide. And, I know I’d have a lot of my own questions answered and clarification needs met at t at this conference.
