USMB Gathering 2020, the new name for the USMB National Pastors’ Conference and National Convention, will be held in Independence, Missouri, July 21-25, 2020.

Join together with Mennonite Brethren from across the United States as we gather this summer to be encouraged, challenged and resourced by dynamic speakers, experience community and support our national MB family.


USMB Gathering 2020 will be held at Stoney Creek Hotel and Conference Center, 18011 Bass Pro Drive in Independence, Missouri, a suburb of Kansas City providing easy access to all the city has to offer.

A small oasis awaits at Stoney Creek, where a lake, waterfall, park and 2-mile walking trail provide a beautiful backdrop for the hotel, which with its large wood beams, outdoor themes and modern rustic décor has a lodge-type feel.

The conference center, located at one end of the hotel, is on one level. The special room rate of $112 for one to four people includes a complimentary breakfast buffet, coffee, wireless Internet and parking.
