Due to the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Lutheran Hour Ministries has significantly scaled back the LHM Equip 2020 event set to take place Oct. 16-18, 2020, at Union Station Hotel in St. Louis, Missouri.

With ongoing travel restrictions worldwide and the changing nature of the virus response, LHM will not be bringing our international directors to St. Louis for this event. Additionally, the all-day equipping segment, designed to train laypeople for outreach, has been cancelled. The Int'l LLL district presidents' annual meeting will take place on Saturday, Oct. 17.

"We are disappointed to have to change our plans, but with everything that's going on in the United States and the world with the pandemic, it is the right thing to do," says LHM President and CEO Kurt Buchholz. "We hope to bring the international ministry directors to the U.S. another time so we can celebrate with them the life-changing work they are doing in Bringing Christ to the Nations-and the Nations to the Church."

Saturday evening's SENT Celebration gala will still take place as LHM staff, along with the SENT National Leadership Council and Regional Leadership Teams, gather for an evening of thanksgiving and celebration of all that was accomplished through the SENT Initiative.

"In the past five years we've accomplished so much thanks to the SENT Initiative," says Jeff Craig-Meyer, vice president of constituencies at LHM. "Through SENT, with the help of our loyal donors, our volunteer leaders, and staff, we've blown past our goals and reached more people worldwide with the Gospel message. SENT's focus on equipping laypeople, expanding media outreach, proclaiming the Gospel to the unchurched around the globe, and engaging individuals in the digital mission field has uniquely positioned LHM to follow God's lead into the next phase of our ministry."

The SENT gala is an open event. Registration and hotel details can be found at
