  • Ministers Conference

    The 2018 Ministers' Retreat

    May 29-31



    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.
