Eastern District Legal Conference 2018


On November 3, 2018 all Eastern District congregational leaders (pastors, officers, principals, church council members, etc.) are invited to a presentation on some of the important legal issues facing congregations and schools in 2018 and beyond.


The Eastern District has invited Rusty Huseman to be our presenter that morning. Rusty is a licensed attorney and general counsel for the Florida-Georgia District of the LCMS. (For more info on Rusty, see his bio below.) The agenda is straight forward – Rusty will do an hour presentation on the most significant issues facing churches today, followed by a second hour of his answering questions that are submitted in advance.


The presentation will be at First Trinity Lutheran Church, 1570 Niagara Falls Blvd, Tonawanda, NY 14150 and will begin at 9:00 am and end before noon. The cost for the day is $25 for one person OR $50 for all of the people you’d like to bring from your congregation.


You may submit specific legal questions you would like Rusty to answer or comment upon during the course of his presentation in the online registration process.
