Evergreen District Conference for Encouraging, Empowering, and Equipping

 

Welcome back to beautiful Coeur d’Alene for this year’s Evergreen District Conference. You won’t want your team to miss this event, jam-packed with education, inspiration, and networking designed to enrich and connect mission and ministry staff from throughout the district. What a fantastic way to invest in your staff members!

Citygate Network’s 2019 Evergreen conference is intentionally loaded with opportunities to build relationships and to foster learning among your own team, as well as with others in similar roles who face similar challenges in their work. Because this event takes place within your district, many staff members who can’t attend Citygate Network’s Annual Conference can benefit from interaction and education pertinent to them.

The Coeur d’Alene area is known for its natural beauty, including gorgeous sunsets and moonrises over the lake, beaches, hiking trails, golfing, biking, boat rides, and beautiful scenery. Think of this conference as an opportunity to retreat from the everyday grind, and refresh your mind, team, and ministry.

The program will take place at Union Gospel Mission’s Center for Women and Children. Keynote speakers for this year are:

  • Rodney and Traci Wright with Pure Desire, a ministry that provides hope and freedom from sexual addiction.

  • Frank Peretti, one of the best-known authors of American Christian fiction; he has added many non-fiction books as well. Among his titles are: This Present Darkness, Piercing the Darkness, The Wounded Spirit, and No More Bullies. He has sold 15 million copies around the world.  He will be speaking for both morning devotion hours..

Business partners will again be joining us and registration includes two meals.

The $45 registration fee includes all programming and three meals (opening dinner and both lunches).

Note: Discounted hotel options will be added in the coming weeks.
