2016 Southeastern Wisconsin District Convention
The 50th Biennial Convention of the Southeastern Wisconsin District will meet Tuesday and Wednesday, June 14 and 15 on the campus of Wisconsin Lutheran College in Milwaukee.

Convention Theme:   Our Great Heritage . . . from Age to Age

Opening Service Preacher:  Outgoing District President David Rutschow

Keynote Presentation:  Embracing the Cross: A Reformation in the Pastor's Study
                                               Pastor Peter Prange, Living Word, Gray, Tennesee

The agenda includes reports from representatives of most of the synod's boards and commissions and several local ministries and the election of the district officers and the leaders and members of various district boards and committees.

Delegates will also react to reports from floor committees that will focus especially on reports about:
  • doctrinal discussions with the Church of the Lutheran Confession
  • changes being considered for the synod's compensation code
  • an initial draft for a new long range plan for the synod's ministry (2018-2025)
The agenda also includes some time Tuesday evening to acknowledge and celebrate President Rutschow's years of service to the district (thirty years as a district officer, including twenty-four years as our district president).
