Save the dates! This update about our Annual SDB Pastors Conference is provided by the Director of Pastoral Services, Rev. John Pethtel. I am personally looking forward to the opportunity to soak in the content of this event, and especially eager to experience the encouragement that flows from conversations with pastors from throughout the country. Please take a look at the information below for more details to attend, or maybe to be able to encourage your pastor to attend and experience the Summit.
The Summit (A SDB Pastors Conference) will take place from April 24-26 in Thornton/Northglenn, CO. The theme will be The Right-Side-Up Pastor. All serving or retired pastors and their spouses are welcome to attend. Anyone who is training for pastoral ministry or is feeling a call to pastoral ministry and their spouses are also welcome to attend. If you have a question as to whether you should be attending, please contact the Director of Pastoral Services.
The cost to attend is $125 per person. In order to help us plan effectively, you must pay ahead of time by April 10 by check to the SDB Center (made payable to Pastoral Services) or by credit/debit card. If payment is not received by April 10, we will not be able to guarantee you a spot. Assistance may be available for you from our continuing education funds or other sources. If you need to overcome an obstacle to your attendance, please contact the Director of Pastoral Services. WE WANT YOU THERE!
April 23 and April 27 will be travel days. Please make plans to arrive at the Ramada Plaza by Wyndham in Northglenn/Denver North anytime after 3 pm on April 23. If you arrive earlier than April 23 or leave later than April 27, all arrangements are on your own.
Flights should be booked into Denver International Airport (DEN). We will arrange transportation to/from there. You may also arrive by Greyhound Bus or Amtrak. Please send your arrival and departure schedules to the Director of Pastoral Services.
Lodging will be provided at Ramada Plaza by Wyndham in Northglenn/Denver North. You will be sharing a room.
You are also free to make your own lodging arrangements.
Meals will be provided from breakfast on April 24 to breakfast on April 27. Other meals will be at your expense. Please note on the registration if you have any dietary restrictions.
When a full schedule of events is completed, all those registered will receive an email.

Grace and peace,
