- TX Gathering Conference
January 18, 2021 - January 21, 2021
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. All Texas Classic series dates can be found on the Calendar of Events page: click here. Thanks to generous grants by the LCMS Office of National Mission and other funding partners, DOXOLOGY is able to offer each enrolling congregation a $3400 grant. The net result is that all expenses for sixteen days of instruction (pastors, lay leader, and pastor’s wife) cost only $2300 (although the actual cost of this training is really $5700 per congregation.)
2021 Classic registration tuition due: $2300
(Cost to congregation: $2200 + Cost to pastor: $100)
Early registration tuition: $2200, if registered before Jan 1, 2021
(Cost to congregation: $2100 + 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 DFleming@doxology.us regarding eligibility for additional grant dollars.
Registrations for the postponed 2020 TX Classic have automatically been converted to 2021 TX Classic enrollment.

For Pastors: A Word About Registration for The DOXOLOGY Experience. You are enrolling in a professional continuing education program of the first order. Hundreds of pastors have found this experience of learning, conversation, worship, and care to be transformational for their life and ministry. In order to gain the full benefit, it is essential that you and your lay leaders commit to the entire package: Gathering, Encore, and Grand Reunion. If the sequence of events in your selected training cycle conflicts with other personal obligations, you may attend a corresponding event in one of the other cycles scheduled in the current year.
Pastoral needs in a congregation cannot be anticipated, of course. Therefore upon enrolling in a given training cycle, contact another pastor who will be on call to cover sick calls, emergency pastoral needs, and funerals during your scheduled DOXOLOGY events.
Covid 19 Cancellation Guidelines: The Cedarbrake Retreat Center in Austin expects to be open and available to serve us for the DOXOLOGY Gathering. In the event that something should change causing Cedarbrake to be unavailable to us for this retreat, DOXOLOGY will provide you with a refund, or apply your tuition to another Classic event.
