- Illinois Gathering Conference
July 10, 2017 - July 13, 2017
4:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Fees and Grant Information: The registration fee covers ten days of instruction, materials, food and lodging for pastors, three days for one lay leader, and three days for the pastor’s wife. Thanks to generous grants by the LCMS Office of National Mission and other funding partners, DOXOLOGY is able to offer each enrolling congregation a $2,900 grant. The net result is that all expenses for sixteen days of instruction (pastors, lay leader, and pastor’s wife) costs only $1800 (although the actual cost of this training is really $4,700 per congregation.)
2017 series registration fee due: $1800
(Cost to congregation: $1700 + Cost to pastor: $100)
Congregation payments can be made in three installments spread over two fiscal years. If there are special financial considerations, please email HSenkbeil@doxology.us regarding eligibility for additional grant dollars.
Note: This is a professional advanced training seminar.
It is essential that each man attend the entire conference
to gain the full benefit of the training.
