“Woohoo! St. Peter has attended the GLS for at least the last 10 years. It’s transformational.

We take our Lead Staff and Governing Board members, and we’re excited to meet at Trinity Lisle this year.

I’ll start inviting our community leaders, too!”

Rev. Micah Greiner, St. Peter Lutheran Church & School, Arlington Heights, Illinois
