The Conference: Best Practices

With the goal of helping other congregations most effectively use their God-given gifts, Christ Lutheran Church in Phoenix, Arizona, started the Best Practices for Ministry Conference. Since it began, the conference has been presented free of charge to all who attend. Participants are greeted with warm hospitality, great speakers, and practical workshops. The Conference has grown greatly since its start, expanding to the Midwest.


In 2015, Carmel Lutheran (now Cornerstone Lutheran) brought the concept of the conference to Indiana to make it more easily accessible to more congregations "in the Heartland". Cornerstone hosted in 2016 as well, and St. Peter's Lutheran in Columbus assumed the leadership for 2017 and 2018. They turned the reigns back over to Cornerstone Lutheran for 2019 then in 2021 St. Lorenz Lutheran hosted it.
