CALLED Pastors’ Family Convention Information for Your Conference

CALLED Pastors’ Family Convention  Information for Your Conference

This quinquennial convention is the only time pastors in the entire division join together for the purpose of being connected, equipped, inspired, and valued. As iron sharpens iron, so we sharpen each other. Prov. 27:17

Serving and giving is a huge part of their entire lives. So as a thank you, this convention is planned to give back to the pastor and family. This convention is all about the pastor and the pastoral family. It will take place on June 21-24, 2020, in Lexington, Kentucky.
