The next ALMA Conference will be held on January 30-31, 2019 at the Crowne Plaza St. Louis Airport Hotel.  This year’s theme is “Telling Mission Stories that Motivate!”  Keynote speakers include Rev. Matt Popovits, Jean Johnson, Linda Haley, Rev. Gabe Kasper and Rev. Johnson Rethinasamy.  Registration opens soon!

This year’s conference will explore the importance of telling a good story in today’s world of communication.  We will discuss how to tell our mission stories in a way that motivate others to support our work.  We will share how to craft our mission stories without exploiting those we are called to serve.  We will even address best practices in reaching people who are not particularly interested in what we have to say about our ministry or our God.

We will be doing things a little different this year.  Rather than covering a wide range of topics with many presenters, we have decided to have all presentations led by four keynote speakers. Our goal is to go deeper into our topics so that attendees can really sink their teeth into the material. Our keynote speakers will be available to answer questions and help facilitate small and large group discussions based on their presentations.

Keep your eyes open for e-mails and ALMA Facebook posts that will feature our speakers, hotel information, registration and more!
