Linden Valley Baptist Conference Center



*Commuters ONLY (Lodging no longer available for new registrants)

This event will give pastors, deacons, and their wives an opportunity to get away together, enjoy a time of refreshment, and be inspired and challenged by a gifted communicator who loves pastors, deacons, and their families deeply. You will leave with a renewed commitment to the Lord, your common work as “gardeners of the fellowship,” and have a definite sense of direction about the nature of deacon ministry in your church. You don’t want to miss out on this special time!
