It's the summer of 1983 in the north of Italy, and Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet), a precocious 17- year-old American-Italian boy, spends his days in his family's 17th century villa transcribing and playing classical music, reading, and flirting with his friend Marzia (Esther Garrel). Elio enjoys a close relationship with his father (Michael Stuhlbarg), an eminent professor specializing in Greco-Roman culture, and his mother Annella (Amira Casar), a translator, who favor him with the fruits of high culture in a setting that overflows with natural delights. While Elio's sophistication and intellectual gifts suggest he is already a fully-fledged adult, there is much that yet remains innocent and unformed about him, particularly about matters of the heart. One day, Oliver (Armie Hammer), a charming American scholar working on his doctorate, arrives as the annual summer intern tasked with helping Elio's father. Amid the sun-drenched splendor of the setting, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever.

Elder/Pastor Conference 2018
Oregon Christian Convention – Elder/Pastor Retreat 2018 - "Shepherd the Church!" (Acts 20:28). At the 2018 Elder/Pastor Retreat, your elder team will be encouraged and challenged to pursue greater excellence in leadership. This year our Keynote Speaker is George Johnson, executive director of Christian Evangelistic Association. George will inspire us to pursue what it really means to lead in the church today. Three breakout sessions facilitated by elders from throughout the Northwest will follow the Keynote Speaker. Your elder team will join with others church leaders from around the region to exchange ideas and discuss three key areas of church leadership. The first breakout session will address the challenge of keeping the church on mission and the important role elders play in overseeing the ministry of the church. Churches can easily fall into a routine when leaders allow the mission to drift away from reaching our world for Christ. In the second breakout session, we will address the challenge of developing new leaders to serve as elders in the church. This is a great opportunity to find out how others have been successful in raising up new leaders and passing on the torch from generation to generation. The third breakout session will highlight the role of elders in providing pastoral care in the church. This gets at the heart of what it means to "shepherd the flock." More church elders today are seeing their role as a ministry that goes far beyond sitting on a board and voting yea or nay. Hear from other elders who are doing more to really shepherd the church and share what has worked in your church. The day will also include time for lunch and fellowship. Mark your calendars and bring your elder team to the 2018 Elder/Pastor Retreat.
