Pre-Conference Event Introduced for October’s Fall Pastors Conference!

Each year we receive feedback on the Fall Pastors Conference post-conference survey that some of the attendees would like to see some sort of added optional social event to give more time for fellowship, etc.  We are excited to be able to give that type of event a try at this year’s conference!  LCEF is generously hosting this event, with some additional financial assistance received from the amazing team at Visit Hamilton County, keeping the event itself free for all participants.  We are incredibly thankful for their help in making this event happen!  This event is open to spouses as well as conference participants.

The optional pre-conference event will be Sunday evening, October 23 at Topgolf in Fishers, but don’t let it scare you if you aren’t a golfer!  The location provides bays with comfortable seating, no-pressure gaming, food, and drink, all with a ton of opportunity to mingle and enjoy fellowship with other participants. See some amazing pictures of the venue HERE.  Golf junky?  You’re covered, too, as leaderboards are provided and bragging rights are up for grabs.   For those staying at the Embassy Suites, you can enjoy the nightly complimentary reception at the hotel, then either hop on the provided shuttle at 7:30 or drive/carpool the short trip to Topgolf (12-minute drive).  Not staying at the Embassy Suites?  Feel free to meet us at Topgolf for the 8:00p – 10:00p event.  Light dinner (chicken tenders, pork sliders, chips, queso, guac, fruit, chips, cookies, pop, and tea) will be provided buffet-style, as well as a couple of drink tickets for other beverages.  The shuttle will be making trips as-needed back to the Embassy Suites, with the final ride back being at the event’s 10:00pm completion.

Please note that ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST PRE-REGISTER as final counts have to be turned in ahead of time with the venue and adequate number of bays reserved prior.  Space may be limited, and we have already had a wonderful initial response, so be sure and register soon!  You can register for this pre-conference event when you register for the Fall Pastors Conference itself: ONLINE REGISTRATION.  You can find all the details on the Fall Pastors Conference on the Indiana District website through this link.  Already registered for the Fall Pastors Conference and didn’t register for Topgolf, but now you want to attend?  Please just call the District Office at 260-423-1511, ext. 2204 and we can get you added if there is still space.

We hope that you will be able to join us for this wonderful opportunity to relax and share in some time in fun and fellowship.  A general reminder also that the Embassy Suites special pricing room block closes at the end of the day THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22.  Registrations and assessment payments for the conference are due by FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7.  You are still able to pay your church’s assessment through online registration even if no active pastor is able to attend.

We very much look forward to this chance to get together for this special pre-conference event as well as the conference itself (Oct. 24-25).  Hope to see you there!
