If you’re in full-time ministry, fall is clearly the time to get yourself to a conference and rejuvenate before the holiday services need to be planned. No matter where you live in the United States, there’s a church conference for you. It’s exciting that there are so many options and some conferences that focus specifically on the creative side and tech side of ministry. Pastors, children’s leaders, youth leaders, worship leaders, and church communicators and administrators can get away, get refreshed, learn new skills, meet other people with similar ministry needs, and even connect with your church team if you’re fortunate enough to go to a church conference with people from your own church.
