Conference Schedule and Important Information

We are only two weeks away!  We. Can. Not. Wait.  Please find here a brief schedule along with answers to some important questions we know you have.  Don't see the answer to your question?  Call Jessica Spade (785) 263-5098.

What time do I need to arrive at Sullivant Retreat Center?

  • Registration will begin at 4:00p.m., Monday, June 20th.  We will have dinner ready for you at 5:45. The first session begins at 7:00p.m.

When is the conference over?

  • Our final session will end at approximately 9:00p.m. Wednesday night,  June 22nd.  Your conference fee covers the cost of staying at the Lodge on Wednesday night.   We will serve you breakfast on Thursday, June 23rd and send you on your way.  If you live nearby, you are welcome to head home when we are done Wednesday evening.  However, the cost cannot be adjusted for you.  Sorry!  It’s a package deal

What do I need to bring?

  • Sullivant Retreat Center is a lovely facility that is similar to a motel.  You do not need to bring bedding or towels.  Attire for the conference will be casual: shorts, jeans, etc.  I don’t believe there will be any men on the grounds so you could even don pajama pants for late evening conversations or early morning coffee.  Sullivant is a beautiful, peaceful place near a lake with numerous places sit or stroll outside.  So, bring good shoes for a long walk. (You might want to pack some insect repellent. This is Oklahoma.)  If you enjoy a daily run, we can point you in the right direction. 
  • Of course, bring your Bible and journal.  We hope you will get both some extended time with God and some great conversation with friends, new and old. 
  • We suggest that you check the weather online.  Most likely it will be hot and somewhat humid.  But, it could also be rainy or stormy this time of year.  A light jacket and an umbrella might be good to have along.
  • If you have a favorite board game, or outdoor game, feel free to bring it.  Bocce Ball, anyone?
