8/9/18 ... 

The planning team for the 2019 NAC met in Washington, D.C. on August 8. They approved Salt & Light (Matt. 5:13-24) as the theme. “You are the world’s seasoning, to make it tolerable. If you lose your flavor, what will happen to the world? And you yourselves will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless. You are the world’s light—a city on a hill, glowing in the night for all to see” (TLB). Lutheran schools need to continue educating new generations for their role in both of the Two Kingdoms. Doing that requires sound and bold education in Scripture, witness, apologetics, and citizenship. It also requires freedom and resources to accomplish the task.  See additional details of the theme here

One conference day will be with leadership and participation from Washington-based 
Lutheran Center for Religious Liberty and its leader, Gregory Seltz. Specific programming will include relevant sectionals and plenaries for all levels of leaders in Lutheran education.

Planning team members are Rich Cohrs, Cindy Deatherage, Sally Hiller, Joshua Klug, Ryan Radke, Greg Seltz, and LEA staff.
