Transforming Ministries III

July 22, 2014 @ 10:00 am - July 24, 2014 @ 12:00 pm


The Transforming Ministry Conference III is taking place July 22-24 in Des Moines, WA. The event will take place next to the Pacific Northwest Conference office at Wesley Homes Retirement Center in their auditorium. Our Keynote Speakers at this summer’s session will be:

  • Jill Nishi, who serves as a Senior Adviser in the US Program at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
  • Rev. Sue Nilson-Kibbey, director of Connectional Ministries, West Ohio Annual Conference

Transforming Ministry III will begin at 10 AM on Tuesday, July 22 and conclude at 3 PM on Thursday, July 24. Cost for the three day event is $500 per person, which includes all lunches and one dinner. Hotel and travel are at participant’s expense. We have secured a hotel rate of $95 (includes tax) per night, double occupancy, at a nearby Best Western. Once registered, you will receive more information regarding lodging near the event location. Des Moines and Wesley Homes are about 4 miles  south of Seattle International Airport. PNW Conference attendees (clergy) are asked to register but not pay at this time. The Board of Ordained Ministry has designated funds for PNW participants, so until everyone has registered, we won’t know what the reduced fee will be. You will be contacted later about the reduced cost and asked to pay then.

There will be time to interact with speakers and each other, along with an opportunity to work on “Innovation Grants” worth up to $1500. Use the link below to find out more about the grants. Click here to Learn More.
