2021 Annual Conference

The Annual Conference of the Lutheran Transitional Ministry Association [LuTMA - formerly the National Association of Lutheran Interim Pastors (NALIP)] will begin at 1:00 PM on Monday, June 21, 2021 and conclude by noon on Wednesday, June 23, 2021.

LuTMA is the newly formed association that has transitioned from the two primary Lutheran church bodies: The Interim Ministry Association of the ELCA (IMA- ELCA) and the Interim Ministry Conference of the LCMS (IMC-LCMS), to support and renew Lutheran congregations, school, camps, and other institutions in transition.

The Annual Conference brings together Lutherans who work with congregations or other institutions in transition - pastors, laity, judicatory representatives and other interested persons.

Current members of a member association (IMA or IMC) may register for the LuTMA conference at a discounted rate. Association membership dues may be paid with your conference registration fee to qualify for the discount if you have not already submitted the 2020 membership fee directly to your denomination's organization.

Conference Registration Fees

Registration fees include all break refreshments, Tuesday lunch and conference materials. Hotel rates will be available in early January.
