Church members and ministry leaders across the country have already registered for the 2019 GARBC Conference. Still on the fence about attending? Missing this year’s conference may mean missing one of the biggest blessings of your year! When considering whether to attend, perhaps one of the following thoughts has crossed your mind. Read on to discover the facts dispelling your arguments.

“I’ve been to a lot of GARBC conferences. This one will be just like all the rest.”

Every conference has something special about it. For one, each year we bring in a new array of top-notch speakers and module presenters who are well versed in God’s Word and their respective fields. Second, this will be Mike Hess’s first conference as our national representative. You will want to see how he shapes the conference.

“It’s in Iowa. What’s there to do in Iowa?”

You will be surprised at all the things you can do in Des Moines. The conference site is not far from Jordan Creek Town Center, the largest shopping complex in Iowa, with more than 1.3 million square feet of space. Learn about Jordan Creek and other interesting places to visit at Catch Des Moines.

“It’s too far away.”

Des Moines is a bit of a stretch for those on the Atlantic or Pacific coast, but the conference cannot get more centrally located than in Iowa. The conference site is across the street from the Des Moines International Airport, so if you fly in, you won’t even need to rent a car.

“It’s too expensive.”

Though the conference is reasonably priced, think of it as money well spent. You are investing in your ministry, and you will return home enriched in God’s Word, reenergized for your work, and equipped with ministry know-how. If you register now, you can take advantage of our early bird discount. And if finances are an issue, the GARBC has conference scholarships available to help.

“I go to my regional meetings. Those are enough.”

State meetings are valuable, but there’s something special about rubbing shoulders with people on a national level. Networking with people from across the country will expand your outlook.

Don’t miss the 2019 GARBC Conference! Register now to attend. See you in Des Moines!
