July vacation
Network weekly publications, LEAnews, and weekly devotions will be off for several weeks due to staff vacations and heavy concentration of the new website and conferences. Special releases will be sent as necessary. The office will remain open. Publications will start again August 1.

Beat the rate increase
Take advantage of LEA membership rates before the first increase in 5 years takes effect on July 1. Save $11 on renewal of one year’s membership and up to $75 if you renew for either two or three years. Log on to Click the myLEA tab and follow the directions. Check your current information and modify, if necessary. If you need help, call us at 708-209-3343. Check out the membership benefits to see what you get for $10 or less a month (at the new rates).


Summer project—new website and access
LEA staff is heavily involved in creating its new website. It is scheduled to go live on August 1. Several things LEA members need to know:

1.      In the past, you have had separate logins and passwords for access to the LEA website and for your myLEA account.

2.     Starting August 1, your myLEA account login and password will work for both the website and for your myLEA account. The old logins and passwords for the website will no longer work.

3.     If you have already set up a myLEA account, you do not need to do anything, just use that login and password for all of your LEA accounts beginning August 1.

4.     If you have not set up a myLEA account, go here and follow the instructions to set up a new account. Your login will be your email address and the password will be one that you designate. You will use this login and password to access myLEA, and starting August 1, you will also use it to access the website.

5.     If you are confused, please contact the LEA office at 708.209.3343 or We can let you know if you have a myLEA account and also which email you selected for the login.

No summer vacation here
“Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms”
(1 Peter 4:9, 10 NIV).

So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Ephesians 4:11-13
