Journey with Jesus in 2021


Get out your planners and mark the dates for NAGA’s next Triennial meeting in Baltimore — July 4–8, 2021. Yes, we know that it’s almost two years away, but think how those years will fly. And, by the header, you can see that we’ve chosen our theme for 2021. In 2018, in Austin, we were sent out. Now we continue on that journey, but with a guide, one who leads and shapes our lives as Christians, Our Lord, Jesus Christ. And to that end, we have selected our keynote speaker (TBA) and are working on the balance of the program, including an extremely special and fruitful field trip. If there is anything you feel it would be valuable to include in our time together, please email Albe Larsen.
