The 28th session of the Dakotas Annual Conference will be held June 11-12, 2021 in a hybrid format. Drawing on our collective values of Jesus, Mission and Connection, the theme of this year's annual conference session is "Jesus Waymaker.” We will explore ways in which we need to step out of our comfort zone and follow the path to live like Jesus in ways beyond our imagination.
