KARL VATERS
KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Karl Vaters is the author of two books about small churches, Small Church Essentials: Field-Tested Principles for Leading a Healthy Congregation of Under 250 and The Grasshopper Myth: Big Churches, Small Churches and the Small Thinking That Divides Us.

On his blog Pivot, he writes about Innovative Leadership from a Small Church Perspective for ChristianityToday.com several times a week. He’s also the founder of NewSmallChurch.com, a ministry that encourages, connects and equips innovative small church pastors.

Karl’s heart is to help pastors of small churches (up to 90 percent of us) find the resources to lead well, and to capitalize on the unique advantages that come with pastoring a small church – something virtually every pastor will spend at least some of their ministry years doing. He also believes that big and small churches can and should work together more often – to the benefit and blessing of everyone.

Karl has been in pastoral ministry for over 30 years. He is the teaching pastor of Cornerstone Christian Fellowship, a healthy small church in Orange County, California, where he has ministered for over 25 years with his wife, Shelley.

TOM'S KITCHEN TABLE
Worship Band

Andrew Stanley (son of Andy Stanley) is an Atlanta-based stand-up comedian and homeschool survivor who isn’t afraid of bringing his deeply rooted insecurities to the stage. Okay, maybe he’s afraid, but he’s doing it anyway. His observational style and dry sense of humor have pleased audiences across the country. 

Reggie and Julie Harvey are Brethren Pastors and church planters, co-pastoring Transformed Life Center in Dayton, OH.

 

 

We're pleased to welcome back for the second year "Tom's Kitchen Table", leading General Conference in musical worship throughout the week.

Lodging Options for General Conference

RIDGECREST CONFERENCE CENTER

Lodging and food are all-inclusive for Base Camp 2019, provided you're staying with us on campus at Ridgecrest. Lodging is hotel-style rooms, each outfitted with two queen beds and a private bath. Those attending conference by themselves (not with a spouse) will have the opportunity to either choose a roommate or be assigned one, as space and beds are limited. Married couples will automatically be assigned as roommates. 

You may request a specific roommate by filling out this form. Rooming requests are not guaranteed, but we will do our best to place everyone with their requested roommate. 

Should you require a room to yourself (off-campus only), or prefer not to stay on campus, please contact Conference Coordinator Ryan Smith to arrange for different registration costs and arrangements. There are a number of hotels in neighboring Asheville, NC.
