October 21 - 24, 2018
Green Lake Conference Center, Green Lake, Wisconsin
This year's theme:
"From Here to There" -- Navigating Through the Chapters of Ministry
A hands-on experience with fellow caregivers to help us each navigate the journey to which God has called us.
In each main session, we'll be looking at areas of ministry - moving from initial dreams to reality, tapping the resources, walking through success and failure, adjusting from expectations to experience. We'll be reminded of similar journeys in Biblical history, and hear how fellow caregivers have experienced and navigated these chapters.
Afternoon workshops include:
"Caregiving in the Year 2028" - a Forum discussion of trends we're seeing and how caregiving will need to adapt in the next decade.
"Fundraising" - What works and what doesn’t work in seeking the resources needed for ministry?
"Sexuality and the Church in America" - reports from a recent survey examining how pastors are responding to sexual challenges within the church.
Leading us in Worship: Stephanie Seefeldt
Back with us once again is Stephanie Seefeldt, who became one of us in CareGivers' most previous years at Green Lake. She loves to lead God's people in congregational worship, using the best of both historic hymnody and of modern worship music. She has worked as the worship leader in mega churches, neighborhood parishes and everywhere in between. She served at Elmbrook church in suburban Milwaukee under the leadership of Stuart and Jill Briscoe.
As part of the worship leadership team of Anne Graham Lotz's Just Give Me Jesus event, Steph has sung at venues as historic as London's Royal Albert Hall and as large as Atlanta's Philips Arena, but her true passion continues to be the local church. At Zion Episcopal in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, where her husband, Scott, serves as Vicar, Steph serves on staff as the organist and music director. She is also a busy mom to four children.

And as always, there'll be small groups and time to network, connect and enjoy the beautiful conference grounds.
