How do my wife and I participate in both conferences together? After dinner together on Friday evening, women will be dismissed to attend the ONE conference in time for its start at the Hilton Garden Inn in Urbandale at 7:30pm. It is approximately 1.3 miles from Stoney Creek Hotel. Of course your wife or women church staff members  are welcome to fully attend the Pastor and Wife’s Retreat

What if I’m single or my wife can’t attend one or both conferences? Then come to the Pastor’s Retreat anyway and enjoy fellowship with others, time to relax, and messages from Dr. Strachan on “The Pastor as Public Theologian: Reclaiming a Lost Vision”

What about hotel reservations? The Pastor and Wives Retreat is from 5:00pm Friday, April 1 to noon Saturday, April 2. The ONE Women’s conference is from 7:30pm Friday, April 1 to 11:30a, Sunday, April 3.. The BCI is providing the hotel for each BCI pastor and wife only for Friday night. If you need an extra night in the hotel for Saturday night, you need to reserve a room with Stoney Creek Hotel. Or you may want to reserve a room at the Hilton Garden Inn for Saturday night.

If I register for the Pastor and Wives Retreat, do I also need to register for ONE? Yes. You must register for both events.

If my wife comes, does she have to attend the ONE conference? We are encouraging pastor’s wives to attend ONE together, but of course participation in the ONE conference is optional and wives or women church staff members are welcome to fully attend the Pastor and Wife’s Retreat.
