Annual Enrichment Conference

March 6-8, 2023 at Seaside Convention Center

Disciple Making: Making Disciples that Make Disciples

Dear Covenant Community,

Please save the dates for our upcoming 2023 Annual Enrichment Conference in Seaside, Oregon! Every year our staff looks forward to gathering with you, our pastors, church leaders, and your families in Seaside to be encouraged, celebrate all God is doing through corporate worship and fellowship, and connect with old and new friends.

This year's theme is Disciple Making: Making Disciples that Make Disciples, and I am honored to have Craig Hardinger as our main speaker. Craig is the Senior Pastor of Arcade Baptist Church in Sacramento, California, and his passion for making disciples will encourage and inspire us all. Kevin Kruse from Laurelwood Baptist Church in Vancouver will lead us in worship, and Levi Manitsas from Cornerstone Christian Fellowship in John Day will be our Emcee.

As always, our time together will provide opportunities to be enriched through our main session, the workshops, and various free-time activities. We encourage you to bring your families as AEC Kids will be open for children through age 11, and beginning this year, AEC Youth will be available for students ages 12-17!

Registration is open!

Grace & Peace,

James Gleason

Other Information

AEC Youth (ages 12-17)

New this Year!

At Church Venture Northwest, we want to provide training to all ages. We have the AEC Kids program that brings Jesus to the little ones while adults get fed as well. This year we will be leading youth from 12-17 years through a time of service projects and teaching. They will spend the mornings doing service projects and the evenings debriefing what they learned and how to grow in their own life through serving others. During the afternoons they are with their families having a great time. This program is for youth who are committed to serving. To make this program successful we will need your youth for the whole schedule, not just mornings or evenings. More information will be sent to those who register.

Childcare (ages 0-11)

Free childcare is provided during general sessions for children ages 0-11. Childcare is also provided during the Wednesday evening banquet, however, no meal will be provided for them. Please feed your child(ren) before checking them in at the childcare station. No childcare will be available during the seminars and ministry tracks. In order to secure the appropriate number of childcare workers needed, please make sure you list names and ages of children who will be needing childcare when you register.
