      • “I am the bread of life” (John 6:22-40)
      • “I am the light of the world” (John 8:12-20)
      • “I am the good shepherd” (John 10:1-30)

Special Opportunities –


Invitation from Camp Shamineau

Come to Camp Shamineau early or stay later and enjoy a FREE personal retreat.  Indicate on the registration any early arrival or later departure.

Can Spouses Attend?

Yes! Please be aware that camp facilities and the conference theme are not designed to yield a “marriage enrichment” emphasis or a focus on ministry spouse concerns. With that expectation we encourage  spouses to attend so ministry couples can focus together on conference themes. One logistical caution for your planning: couples’ housing at camp is limited.  Also, no child care is provided.


Obtaining Ministry License Coaching

Come early (Sunday night?) and invest your Monday morning (9:00–11:30am) by focusing on applying for the Five-Year Nonrenewable License.  Help will be available for working on your doctrinal paper and other application items.  You can also avail yourself of help if you’re working on a different ministry credential.  Come enjoy an informal time of fellowship, learning, and administrative progress. Please email Sharon if you are planning on attending.


Marrige Training Opportunities  – CANCELLED

Russ Berg, Director of Pastoral Training and Church Development with Hope for the Hurting Home has training available.  “How to Help a Friend with a Hurting Marriage” and “Divorce Intervention” are two courses he offers.  Check out the video here about the courses. If you are intersted in one or both of these opportunities in the future, please contact Russ.
