This event is for Clergy of the Cal-Pac Conference.

The Orders Executive Committee invites you to join us at Indian Wells for learning and conversation, as well as meaningful time for relaxation and connecting.

Rev. Dr. Martyn Atkins is the former President and General Secretary of the British Methodist Church. Over the past 20 years he has helped to create Fresh Expressions, a new approach for being the church. Dr. Atkins will share from his wide experience and writings on the Fresh Expressions innovation.

Our hope is that this will not give us one more thing to learn or do, but rather a new way to approach the mission and ministry to which we feel called as leaders in the California-Pacific Annual Conference. Over the course of four sessions with Dr. Atkins, we will learn some practical applications for our local churches and other contexts of our ministries.

Scholarships are available from the Board of Ordained Ministry Ministerial Education Fund and the California-Pacific Foundation.  To request a scholarship, please complete the registration form and select that you’d like to request a scholarship.
