Registration is now full.

What is the Minister’s Juggling Act?

Are you tired from trying to juggle all of life’s priorities? Would you like a better balance between ministry and family? The Minister’s Juggling Act might be just for you!

The Family Ministries team wants to make an investment in your ministry and family. We are funding this event except for your registration cost per couple, which includes lodging, conference materials, and most meals.

This is a time for you to relax and be casual. It’s a getaway, an opportunity for you to refocus on your main priorities. Because this is a couples event, we encourage you to make arrangements for your children in order to maximize your time together.

This event is for all church ministry staff. Come and have a great time with your spouse!
