Greetings to all,
With heavy heart, I inform you that due to low registration, we have had to cancel the Tell the Good News About Jesus Convocation scheduled for February 10-11.
The District Board and I will be discussing how and when to try and bring this to you. Maybe we had poor communication. Maybe it was just a bad weekend. Maybe it was too long a convocation. Maybe it just didn’t interest enough people. Maybe it was too far to travel. Feedback is welcomed to make it available, better, and a service to you and your congregations.
Pres. Bertsch, LCMS North Dakota District

Have you ever wanted to reach out to others with the Gospel of Jesus Christ but did not? Have you ever wanted to encourage family members with the Good News of salvation by grace through faith, but struggle with how to accomplish it? Have you been concerned about the future of your loved ones concerning eternal life? Have you been concerned about the future of your congregation or the church throughout the world? Do you want others to share the joy and peace of God’s grace and mercy in His Son, Jesus Christ? If your answer to any of these questions is “Yes,” join us for the “Tell the Good News about Jesus” convocation on February 10 & 11, 2023, at the Ramada Inn in Bismarck, ND.
