The Gathering

January 9-12, 2019
Orlando, Florida at The Caribe Royale

More than a minister’s conference. The Gathering is a reunion of ministry family and friends. A sabbath for our souls. Coming together to stop, rest, pray, play and thrive.  A chance to celebrate what God is doing in our lives and ministry through meals, stories, inspiration and worship.  We know this will be a gathering you won’t want to miss!

Wesleyan clergy & spouses are invited to register this summer.

Stop. Rest. Pray. Play. Thrive.

Once every four years we gather for a ministry jubilee. A Sabbath from our work to stop, rest, pray, play and thrive with God and each other.
