Mining for Jesus
The Lutheran Convention for Seniors, sponsored by the OWLS (Organization of WELS Lutheran Seniors), will be held at the Eagle Ridge Resort and Spa in the fall setting of the rolling hills of the Galena, Illinois area. Galena was a 19th century center for mining lead and zinc. The theme for the 2019 convention is “Mining for Jesus”.
October 6-9, 2019, WELS seniors will gather to mine for treasures in Jesus. Four main speakers will show ways that we can be “Miners for Jesus”:
- Missionary, Dan Sargent: God helps us to accomplish his plans bit by bit
- Christian Life Resources Director, Bob Fleischmann: A life time of experience prepares us
- Special Ministries Director, Jim Behringer: Christian caring matters
- Chaplain, Ken Wenzel: Christian hope lessons from medical objects
