Pastors Conference


The Conference

Treasuring Christ Together Network and Montana Wilderness School of the Bible are partnering to offer pastors, elders, and aspiring elders a time of refreshment and renewal.  Time in large group sessions and break-outs will be offered alongside the opportunity to hike, enjoy the river, and spend time around the fire.

What will the accommodations be like?

At MWSB, we have six dorm buildings that each have permanent single-sized bunk beds. During the summer months, we also set up a few high-end cots in the rooms. Each room during the pastors conference will have 5 or 6 total beds. Conference attendees will need to bring their own bedding. The bathrooms are located in a separate building only 10-20 yards from the dorms. The bathrooms have showers, sinks, toilets, and laundry available. 

Will food be provided?

Yes, each meal will be provided in our Dining Hall facility and is included for all attendees when you register. Our “Hob-Nob” coffee shop will also be open from time to time for snacks, coffees, merchandise, etc. 

What will the conference schedule be like?

We have a number of gifted presenters who have agreed to come and speak at a number of both main sessions and smaller break-out sessions. The schedule will also have built-in optional times for hiking, eating meals together, sitting around a campfire, etc. 

Who is putting on the conference?
Montana Wilderness School of the Bible is the primary host (you can learn more at https://mwsb.org/about/) and Treasuring Christ Together Network is the co-sponsor ( you can learn more at https://tctnetwork.org/mission).
