The Covenant Conference is coming to a location near you!
Instead of the national conference this year, a series of regional conferences will take place across the country. We are excited about the potential for these gatherings, which will minimize travel expenses for many and offer opportunities for strengthening local relationships. Themes, keynote speakers, and preachers will vary, but Executive Director Brian Ellison and National Organizer Tricia Dykers Koenig will be present at each conference to talk about the ongoing work of the Covenant Network.
The first 2012 regional conference was held in Davis, CA in April; the first of the fall will be at Westminster Church in Minneapolis on Saturday, October 27; details and online registration can be found here. Mark Achtemeier is the keynote speaker, and Dan Vigilante will preach.
Here’s the current schedule, with other locations under consideration; we’d love to hear from you if you would like to volunteer to host another:
