Conference Care and Consolation (formerly Lutheran Leaders in Mission):
Conference Care and Consolation gatherings are monthly gatherings of rostered and professional leaders (i.e. PMAs and youth leaders) in the Eastern Missouri Conference (as well as the Metro-East area of IL). At these meetings we will work to build connections with each other, building our colleague group so that we can more effectively serve the greater St. Louis area. Periodically there will be educational/informative presentations as part of this gathering.
The greatest challenge facing clergy today is a lack of support. Church leadership is becoming increasingly isolated, leading to higher levels of depression, anxiety, and burn-out. Whereas LLiM strove to bring meaningful learning opportunities for the area, Care and Consolation will strive to build the interpersonal relationships. The unique dynamics of the St. Louis area have allowed our leaders to function in a spirit of competition instead of with a spirit of communion.
So we gather to care for one another, rejoicing with them in their strengths. And we gather to console one another in our struggles and weaknesses.
