Join us at the Town and Country Resort in San Diego for this year’s Network Conference & Youth Convention.

We can’t wait to see you in beautiful San Diego for the 2023 Network Conference and Youth Convention! This year’s Network Conference (April 25-27) will include several new features which will inspire and challenge you in your local and global ministry. Join us at the Town & Country Resort & Convention Center, a new and exciting venue for us. You will enjoy the amenities of the property, including many opportunities for fellowship in outside seating clusters.

And for the second time, Youth Convention (April 28-30 ) will follow Network Conference, giving pastors & teams the opportunity to stay and support their students into the weekend at Youth Convention.

Reserve your hotel room and register today! San Diego has much to offer, and whether you come early or stay late (or both?), we encourage you to carve out this time to be refreshed, encouraged and rejuvenated—and to return to your church and community as healthy ministers.

See you in April!

Kathy Cannon | Women of SoCal Lunch 2023 | Kathy Cannon has an unfortunate affinity for extremes. From starting life in the smallest of rural towns in the Shenandoah Valley, to lead pastoring in the urban sprawl of the San Francisco Peninsula, her journey has taken her around the globe and back to connect, communicate, and coach people across diversity barriers. Kathy is a fourth generation Assemblies of God minister and has served as a children’s, executive, lead pastor, and sectional presbyter. She most recently pastored pastors in their personal and spiritual development as the Initiative Director for the Center for Thriving Church Planters at Northwest University. Beware, in even the briefest of conversations she may challenge you to take another step towards being who and how God has created you, consider planting a local church, find a therapist, drink better coffee, or all of the above.
