2021 VIRTUAL MINISTERS’ CONVOCATION
EDUCATION AND FELLOWSHIP
Every year, the NACCC hosts the Ministers’ Convocation. This gathering for clergy is designed to provide continuing education, spiritual reflection and rest. It usually begins on the second Monday after Easter, a perfect time for clergy to renew themselves. Many churches set aside money to send their pastor to this event, knowing that the spiritual rest their pastor gains benefits the church.
Scholarships of up to $500 are available through the Minister’s Assistance and Enrichment Fund. Requests for assistance may be made to the Executive Director of the NACCC no later than 30 days before the date of the Convocation.
REV. HOWARD CONN ENDOWMENT
Financial assistance up to $800 is available for registration and travel expenses to attend a NACCC Convocation. The Howard Conn Endowment was established by Judge James and Leanne Rogers in memory of the Rev. Howard Conn, retired minister of the Plymouth Church in Minneapolis, MN. The Endowment’s explicit use is to support ministers travel expenses to attend Educational opportunities, such as Convocation.
Rev. Conn was a preacher, lecturer, ecumenist, and writer. One of his favorite topics was the enduring significance of the Congregational Way of life. Ministers receiving these funds will share Reverend Conn’s belief that: “We think that God is too great to care what denominational labels we wear, but that God does desire that we join hands with all who love him/her in an effort to hasten the day of the Kingdom.” -Reverend Howard Conn
To receive financial assistance a minister is required to fill out the application form and return it to the NACCC office on or before March 31st. See application for more details.
