Pastors Conference 2022

 
.

The words of Jesus found in Mark 6:30-32 serve as the theme for this year’s District Pastors Conference:

“Come Away…Rest A While… Renew and Restore.”

We will gather for rest, renewal, and restoration as we spend time to be reacquainted, challenged to examine various aspects of ministry health (spiritual, relational, financial, etc.), and sent back invigorated for our tasks among the Lord’s people.

Registration is open through September 1.  Please complete your registration through this link no later than September 1.
 
Registration costs are covered through assessments paid by each member congregation. Assessments are sent to each member congregation for payment prior to the conference. Emeritus workers who have served in the Florida-Georiga District for more than five years are grandfathered in with no registration fee. 
 
Registration fee for those who are not members of the FLGA District is $75.00 per person.
