Outgoing ALMA President, David Savings had this to say, “As I finish up my role as President of ALMA, it has been a great blessing for my ministry, LeadaChild CCCS, to be connected with all the other ministries/agencies of ALMA. This National Conference was fantastic and the opportunities to network gives me hope that our ministries are making a difference in bringing the Gospel to the ends of the earth. We cannot do it all, but each one of our ministries can work together to do more for God's Kingdom."

Thank you again to the conference sponsors, The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod and Lutheran Hour Ministries!
