The Conference team of Leadership Development Ministers has undergone several changes over the last year, including reconfiguration of duties and new staff. Further, it’s been some time since Rev. David Hobbs, LDM of Camping and Christian Formation, was first introduced around the conference. It’s time for a meet-and-greet. Join them at one of the following locations for coffee, conversation and collaboration. Learn more about each LDM’s particular ministry area and have your questions answered about the work of the LDMs.
