Siebert Lutheran Foundation's Annual Change or Die Conference provides an opportunity for Lutheran ministry leaders to network and learn from each other. The event is a safe place for assembling people and building relationships across the Lutheran denominations.

In 2019 we are celebrating 10 years of bringing people together with speakers and discussions focused on ways to Reimagine Ministry and Siebert is delighted to present Rev. Dr. Dale Meyer, President of Concordia Seminary in St. Louis. President Meyer will share reasons to be optimistic about the future of the church and the ways the church could evolve to spread the Gospel more effectively. Also joining us is Rev. Heidi Neumark from Trinity Lutheran Church of Manhattan. Rev. Neumark is the author of "Breathing Space: A Spiritual Journey in the South Bronx" and she will talk about ways to engage your ministry in the reality around you and how to organize the community to build up leadership and create change. More information about President Meyer and Rev. Neumark is below, along with details about the 2019 panel discussion, Creative Stewardship.
