Who: Clergy and laity of the Dakotas Conference.

What:  Dr. Gary Goreham, NDSU, will be talking about trends in social and demographic changes in rural America and how these trends are affecting communities and churches.

Where: on the campus of Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell, South Dakota.

When: Friday, September 20  at 2pm to  Saturday, September 21 until noon. (*Some Conference committees will be meeting before, during or after the event. Contact your committee chair for this information.)
