      The 2020 National Conference will again be at Messiah College during the last week of May. Registration is similar to last year. All pastors currently serving churches and all delegates representing churches  are required to pay the registration fee of $75. To avoid the late fee please click "registration" below and register before May 1st.   

       We are electing our next Bishop this Conference. If you are a voting member, registration ensures your ballot is prepared for you. Any discount codes you may be entitled regarding your status with the Conference would have been emailed or mailed to you. 

        Check in will start 9am Wednesday May 27th with Conference officially beginning with Communion at 1pm. Plan on arriving before noon to pick up your packets & meal cards to ensure time for parking, unpacking and those initial greetings!  Messiah College is a 'walking' campus. Conference Business is held in the gym which can get extremely cold, so come prepared.

      This year we will have 14 Educational Experiences to select from during the Thursday afternoon Breakout Sessions. Make sure to select one Educational Experience for each of the three sessions (1:45, 2:45 & 3:45 pm Thursday ,May 28th). Space is limited and walk-ins are discouraged due the presenters providing materials.

We look forward to seeing you at "Made for More" 2020 National Conference.
