Sadly, the 2020 West Coast Conference has been cancelled due to COVID-19 and regulations that prohibit our conference. All registered attendees will be contacted and refunded.
An Inside Look at the Conference
Bring Some Friends Along
The West Coast Ministers’ Conference is an annual event where men gather from a variety of ministerial vocations to worship God and sit under the preaching of his Word.
Communion With God
Murrieta Hot Springs, Murrieta, CA.
In a world where there are an increasing amount of reformed conferences to attend, some might wonder what this conference venue has to offer. Murrieta surely isn’t the most populous city on the West Coast.
Some might ask, “Why did Banner choose to host a conference at a Christian conference center/resort?” First, the conference center allows us to keep everyone together. Traffic in the greater LA area is terrible. But once guests check in at the conference center they will have no reason to leave. All food, room arrangements, conference activities, etc., will be located at the conference site. This will allow our attendees to relax, form stronger relationships with the other Christian men at the conference, and be able to spend time in public and private prayer and Bible study. The vast majority of the attendees will stay in the private rooms on campus, share meals together at the campus dining hall, and enjoy fellowship together in the campus recreation centers (pool, beach volley ball, tennis, etc). Second, the Hot Springs Conference Center allows us to keep the conference rates low. This is an important feature of Banner of Truth conferences, for we want to reach out to as many pastors as possible, not all of whom are serving in large and prosperous congregations. Our conference fee, which ranges from $270 to $405 is great value for money when you consider it covers room and board, conference registration, bookstore gift certificates, and the use of all campus facilities. There are absolutely no hidden costs!
The US Ministers’ Conference is arranged for men in (or who have been in) pastoral ministry; students in theological training for the ministry; men serving in missionary work (at home or overseas); and men serving the church as elders or as deacons. In addition, we welcome those who are sponsored by their church/minister who are seriously considering the possibility of eldership or full-time ministry.
We ask that only men attend to maximize opportunities for fellowship, accountability, and prayer. We understand the difficulty of being away from family for a couple of nights, but one of the goals of this conference is to encourage men to forge strong friendships with like-minded brothers and fellow gospel ministers.
