The 2018 Ministers' Retreat
We are pleased to announce Donald E. Ross will be our keynote speaker for this year’s Ministers’ Conference on May 29-31 at the Kentucky Dam Village State Park Resort in Gilbertsville, KY.
Donald Ross currently serves as the Northwest Ministry
Network Team Leader. This network is comprised of 330 churches and 1,400
ministers in Washington State and Northern Idaho.
Previously, Don served as the lead pastor of the Creekside
Church in Seattle, from 1995-2014. This 60-year old church once 2000 in
attendance, declined over fifteen years to a painful 150. Don first served as a
consultant to the church, and then became lead pastor.
Over the next ten years many of the issues that caused the
decline were addressed and in 2004 the four-acre, 80,000 square foot campus in
Seattle was sold and Creekside Church relocated north seven miles to a ten-acre
parcel in Mountlake Terrace, where a newly remodeled campus now serves as home.
The Creekside Church has 2200 people who call it their church home, with
nearly 700 attending on any given Sunday.
We will be enjoying the beautiful settings of the Kentucky Dam Village Resort State Park on Kentucky Lake just outside of Paducah, KY.
