May I stay at a location other than the recommended hotel?

Because the Conferences are being held at local churches, we are not committed to filling a certain number of hotel rooms with our contract. You are welcome to stay at someone’s home or at a different hotel. The rates we have contracted with the hotel are lower than typical rates.

I’m flying to the Conference. How do I get from the airport to my hotel and to the church?

It would be best to rent a car if flying because there is no mass transportation to the hotel or church.

If a Conference is filled, is there a waiting list?

Yes, if we fill a conference, you may contact Kathy Wargo to put your name on a waiting list.

What if my question hasn’t been answered?

You may contact Kathy Wargo with additional questions.

Please note: Registration fees are NOT refundable, but they are transferrable to someone else for conference registration at the same conference location.
