We're excited to offer brief 45-minute facilitated breakout sessions immediately after lunch (1:15-2pm) for those interested in deepening their involvement within our city.
LPL gatherings have been held every fall and spring since 1981: Join us as the tradition continues. We are asking all leaders in the Norfolk area to assemble for a time of envisioning, fellowship, and asking God for His wisdom and blessing on our great city.
On September 28th, our honored guest and speaker will be Norfolk's new mayor, Kenny Alexander (see bio below). We are asking all levels of leadership within our city to come together under one roof at this important time to grow our unity and strengthen the relational fabric that knits our diverse community together. We want you to join us! As you know, a strong community is one that makes the effort to forge connections. We're intentionally gathering leaders from government, military, all educational institutions (including selected student leaders), businesses, civic leagues, non-profits, and faith-based groups.
