Why Should I Attend?

The 2023 LEA National Administrators Conference will help you grow!

  • This one-day National Administrators Conference offered by Lutheran Education Association immediately precedes the popular and practical Best Practices in Ministry Conference at Christ Church Lutheran in Phoenix. One flight, one hotel, two great events!
  • The timely program involves Lutheran education’s relationship to governmental, cultural, and legislative topics important to the future and safety of Lutheran schools.
  • The 2023 NAC proceeds under the theme

         Mordecai Moments…
    … inspiring courageous leadership in Lutheran education for times like these

Key elements from Scripture which drive NAC’s program (Esther 3–7)…

  • Mordecai would neither bow nor pay homage to Haman—repeatedly refusing King Ahasuerus command to do so.
  • Haman, angry with Mordecai’s lack of obedience, plotted to destroy all of Mordecai’s people—the Jews.
  • Haman complained to the king that Jewish law was “different from everyone else’s, and they do not obey the king’s laws. It is not in the king’s best interest to tolerate them.”
  • The king authorized Haman to “…destroy, kill, and annihilate all the Jewish people.”
  • Mordecai got word to Esther, a queen in the king’s court, encouraging her to tell the king of Haman’s treachery.
  • At first, Esther resisted; it could be lethal to her if the king didn’t summon her, and she just went to him on her own.
  • Mordecai then issued his encouraging and courageous counsel, saying, “Who knows, perhaps you have come to your royal position for such a time as this.”
  • Esther accepted and enacted Mordecai’s risky counsel. She managed a plan to get the king’s attention and protection for her people.
  • Jesus was born King of the Jews some 480 years later.
