National Pastors’ Orientation
April 17 - April 19
The National Pastors’ Orientation (NPO) is April 17-19, 2023 at the Island Palms Hotel and Marina on Shelter Island in San Diego, Calif.
These orientations are held every two years 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 $375 per person or $600 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.
Registration is live and the deadline to register is Thursday, March 14, 2023. Visit the NPO webpage for more details and registration information.
