We invite you to join us for the first annual Gustavus Faith Conference, "Road to the Reformation: Deepening our Lutheran Theological Roots".

Building on the tradition of the Gustavus Association of Congregations' annual convention, the Gustavus Faith Conference promises to be a day of learning, inspiration, and deep connection with our Lutheran identity. The conference will open with a joyful worship service featuring Gustavus student musicians, with the Reverend Corinne Chilstrom bringing the homily. The conference will feature two keynote presentations. Dr. Martin Marty, Fairfax M. Cone Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Chicago Divinity School, will speak on the topic, "What Do Lutherans Have to Offer the 21st Century?" Following lunch, the Rev. Dr. Kenneth Mtata, study secretary for the Department of Theology and Public Witness in the Lutheran World Federation, will bring a second keynote, "Lutheranism in the 21st Century--African Perspectives."

There is no cost to attend the Gustavus Faith Conference. We encourage you to invite members of your congregation, family, and other friends.
