Inaugural Great Plains Pastoral Counseling Conference
Care and Counsel of Distressed Couples
Monday & Tuesday, June 10-11, 2024

Sponsored by The Nebraska District LCMS & GracePoint Institute
Keynote Speaker: Rev. Dr. Justin Hannemann

Have you ever struggled with how to be of service to couples who come to you for help with their marriages? Join us in June as we explore what it means to shepherd the couples God has placed under our care. Competent and confident pastoral care and counsel of distressed couples is needed to build and maintain healthy Christian families. Healthy marriages are the bedrock of so many aspects of the kingdom of God including: effective faith formation and modeling of Christian marriage for the next generation, the health and vitality of the local congregation, and a positive witness to the community.
