Our Mission Festival speakers this year will be Pastor Jeff Morlock, Director of Vocational Discernment for our seminary (NALS), and Pastor Andy Jones, Pastor of Prince of Peace in St. Joseph. Pastor Morlock will be preaching for us Saturday evening and Sunday morning, speaking to the need of the NALC to develop (as of 2020) 300 new pastors over 10 years and his and the NALS's role in meeting that need. Pastor Jones will be speaking to us on Sunday evening, discussing his involvement in the Malawi Orphan Care Project.
