Ministry is better together, and through district gatherings, a dynamic annual meeting, great regional events, and local gatherings where we celebrate and learn together, the Central Conference enables shared ministry and relationships among its member churches and institutions.

Through various events, the Central Conference shares the stories of its churches and ministries for the benefit of our collective work in this region. Learn about these opportunities in our conference.


Our Central Conference annual Celebration is designed to focus the ministries of the Central Conference as well as incorporate the business of the Central Conference Ministerial Association (April 23-24) and the Central Conference Annual Meeting (April 24-25). The Harbor Point Ministries annual meeting will take place during the conference annual meeting.

These workshops are especially designed for local church lay leaders. They are being offered in several locations throughout the Central Conference in hopes that no one will have to travel too far to attend. There will be three different workshops offered in a three year time frame that will give guidance in what it means to be a healthy, missional leader, in a healthy missional church, and also orient lay leaders to the many resources available through our Central Conference office. Learn more.
