2023 Conference

The 2023 CDC Annual Conference will be held June 12-15, 2023 at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, IN. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the deaconess training program at CTSFW, and we are very excited to be able to celebrate this milestone on the seminary campus.

Conference will begin on Monday, June 12 with check-in at CTSFW at 3:00 PM and end at 10:00 AM on Thursday, June 15 after breakfast, a sectional, and closing chapel service. Your registration includes your choice of double occupancy housing or a commuter option and includes all meals and snacks Tuesday and Wednesday, dinner and wine and cheese reception on Monday, and breakfast on Thursday.

The theme for our conference is “Spiritual Care in the Face of Sex, Culture, and our Brain.” Deaconess Dorothy Glenn and the Spiritual Growth and Professional Development committee have been hard at work to organize enjoyable and edifying large group and breakout sessions to help us explore this topic throughout our stay. Speakers include Dr. Gifford Grobien, Dr. Kim Marxhausen, Rev. A. Trevor Sutton, and more.

Conference is open to CDC members and LCMS deaconess students.
