Bringing people together for great food and fellowship with brothers and sisters in Christ to learn about ministry opportunities, receive powerful teaching, and worship the Most Awesome God! See you in July!

 

 

Save the date!

 

July 26-27, 2024 in Kerrville, Texas

 

Our 2024 theme is LOVE WORKS based on Luke 10:27, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” We are excited to welcome speakers Greg and Susan Finke.

 
 

Do you have an idea for an Annual Gathering breakout session?

 
The 2024 Annual Gathering will be held on July 26-27 in Kerrville, TX. All breakouts are 40 minutes in length and will be offered in two different sessions (both on Saturday) so attendees have the opportunity to see various breakouts. 
 
We believe that our pastors, church leaders, and congregants all around Texas each have unique perspectives, abilities, and talents that could be educational and instructive for those who attend the gathering. If you have something you would like to share with others, please submit your idea to us by March 1 so the District Council can review and select presentations.

The natural pull of ministry is toward outcomes, the fruit of ministry. True fruitfulness is life with, rooted and remaining, in Jesus. Jesus told the disciples, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” (John 15.5)

Local Clergy Conferences

Texas is big. 

 
We live in the internet-age, where distance is no longer an obstacle to communication. Even so, our pastors frequently get together the old fashioned way: in person. With a Bible in one hand and a mug of coffee in the other, they engage in deep theology and casual chit-chat, and everyone goes home better for the exchange.
