National Pastors’ Orientation
March 28 - March 30
The National Pastors’ Orientation (NPO) is March 28-30, 2022 at the Island Palms Hotel and Marina on Shelter Island in San Diego, Calif.
COVID-19 UPDATE: As of Feb. 16, the state of California lifted indoor mask mandates for fully vaccinated individuals in most public establishments. The hotel is still taking plenty of precautions with staff wearing masks, heightened cleaning protocols and other measures for the safety of guests and staff. There are currently no restrictions on social distancing that would hinder the program from going on as planned.
You are invited to purchase airline tickets and plan to join us in San Diego in March. Please register by the deadline of February 25.
These orientations are held every two years (with the exception of 2020 due to COVID-19) and are sponsored by the USMB Board of Faith and Life. The invitation to attend is extended to any MB pastors new to the pastorate or new to our conference, or if you are a pastoral staff member who has never attended. Spouses are especially welcome.
This event provides an excellent opportunity to get connected with leaders and other pastors in our national and district families. Those who attend will learn about the MB family structure, theology, how we read the Bible and a short lesson on our Anabaptist and MB history. Many USMB resources including life insurance, retirement opportunities and more will be presented during the orientation. This is a fun and informative event and an opportunity to get away and be renewed and refreshed.
The event and lodging will be at the Island Palms Hotel and Marina on Shelter Island in San Diego, Calif. The registration fee will be $300 per person or $500 per couple and covers hotel accommodations and all meals and activities. You will need to pay for your travel expenses to San Diego, but transportation in San Diego will be provided.
