The Emmaus Conference is now in its eighth year of bringing together Lutheran theologians, pastors and lay people to the Pacific Northwest to facilitate discussions. It has proven helpful in renewing discussions under a free conference style among representatives of the former Synodical Conference. The desire for such discussions has been on the hearts and in the prayers of many who fondly remember the Synodical Conference since its break-up in the mid 20th Century.

This year’s conference information:

  • Essayist: Rev. David Jay Webber, ELS Pastor in Scottsdale, Ariz.
  • Reactors: Rev. Jon Buchholz, WELS District President in California/Arizona; and Rev. Herbert Mueller, LCMS First Vice President
  • Topic: Objective Justification — The direction of our discussions will focus on the pastoral dimensions of the doctrine and how the truth of this teaching gives comfort and peace to the sinner.
  • Dates: Wednesday, April 22 (morning and afternoon sessions plus evening banquet) and Thursday, April 23
  • Location: Parkland Evangelical Lutheran Church; 120 123rd ST S; Tacoma, WA 98444
