The 2014 SDB General Conference will be held at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota, July 27 to August 2.

Airlines to MSP

There is excellent air service to Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport (MSP). Your Host Committee will be glad to pick you up with our Conference shuttle at either of the airport terminals. There will be a $20 per person charge for shuttle service (each way).

Lindbergh Terminal (Terminal 1)    If you fly by Air Canada, Air France, Alaska, American, Delta, Frontier, Great Lakes, United, or US Airways, you will arrive at Terminal 1. Our shuttle pickup will be at Door 6.

Humphrey Terminal (Terminal 2)   If you fly by Airtran, Iceland Air, Southwest, Spirit, or Sun Country, you will arrive at Terminal 2. Our shuttle pickup will be at Door 8.

Both of these doors are at the extreme right as you go out of the terminal onto the street. 

When you register for Conference (by June 30) please let us know the time of your arrival, and the airline you will be using. Regular shuttle service is planned for Sunday afternoon, July 27. There may be a short wait to make the most efficient use of the shuttles. Otherwise, shuttle service—including pickups for pre-Conference meetings and camps—will be on an as-needed basis. There will be a $20 per person charge for shuttle service.

Amtrak Train

We also plan to pick up those arriving by Amtrak. The Empire Builder is the one Amtrak train serving Minneapolis/St. Paul. It arrives from the west scheduled at 7:50 am and from the east scheduled at 10:31 pm. Let your Host Committee know if you need shuttle service from the train.


Greyhound Bus now goes into Union Depot in St. Paul. Please make sure your final stop is St. Paul, and not Minneapolis. Let us know (on your registration form) when you plan to arrive.

The Conference Transportation contact is Pastor Dale Rood. His phone # is 507-633-2772, and e-mail is
