Conference 2023

 Immigration Conference 2023

October 26 to 28, 2023

The Work of Our Fathers

Make plans now to join us for our Biennial Immigration History Conference on October 26 to 28, 2023.  The theme of the conference will be The Work of Our Fathers based on Proverbs 16:3 – “Commit your work to the Lord and your plans will be established.”

We plan to have presentations that study the occupations of the 1838-1839 Stephan immigrants and of other German immigrants to Perry County, Missouri and of their descendants to the present day. We will see how those works have help to establish our communities, our congregations, our schools, and the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod.  A list of the topics to be presented at this conference is displayed below.

You can also download the above list as a Word document here.

Part of the program for this year’s conference is the field trip described on the flyer below. We will be visiting local sites that have not been included in previous field trips. They were picked because of their connection to our conference theme, “The Work of Our Fathers”.

The cost for this year’s conference is $275 per person.
