	World Mission cancels this year's
	'New Directions' conference

	LCMS World Mission, which has sponsored its "New Directions"
mission conference annually for more than 10 years, has cancelled this
year's event, which was scheduled for April 29-May 2 in St. Louis.

	The Synod's mission board is hosting a series of events this
year, in conjunction with the official launch of its "Ablaze!"
initiative at this summer's Synod convention. Due to the amount of
preparation involved in these events, LCMS World Mission decided to
cancel this year's New Directions conference, according to Rev. Steve
Hughey, conference planner.

	Next year's conference will be held, as scheduled, April 28-May
1 in St. Louis, Hughey said.

	The New Directions conference is designed to help mission
leaders in congregations and mission societies understand current
mission trends, learn from mission experts, share experiences with one
another, and become more involved in mission in their own communities
and worldwide.

	More information about the 2005 New Directions conference will
be posted, when it becomes available, on the LCMS World Mission Web site
at <>  .
