Rev. Jon Schroeder
WALKING WITH GOD: Within Our Synod
To do jointly that which we can’t do well separately--that’s why we walk together in this synod called WELS. We know that Christ has called his Church to share the Gospel with every nation. Are you personally ready to fulfill the Great Commission? Will you set aside your career aspirations and dedicate your life to sharing the Gospel? Will you leave behind your extended family and hometown to set out across the country to start a new church plant in Florida? What about leaving your whole country behind and heading to serve Jesus in Lusaka, Zambia? We have men and women ready to do just that in this group that walks together called the WELS, and you share a partnership with them. Pastor Jon Schroeder will lead this breakout in a discussion of the amazing ways we walk with God within our synod
