Event Details

The National Conference on Ministry to the Armed Forces (NCMAF) is holding its yearly conference in January 2019. Endorsers, associate endorsers, spouses, and chaplains are invited to come to the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Virginia for this three-day conference to discuss Excellence in Leadership featuring:   

  • New endorser training by facilitators: Chap. Jack Lea and Dr. Ken Bush
  • Coaching, Val Hastings, Founder/President, Coaching4Clergy
  • Emotional Intelligence, Dr. Sarah Spradlin, Founder/CEO, Vitruvian Advantage
  • Personality Diversity, Fr. William Hood, CEO, Eunoia
  • Religious Liberty Panel with Daniel Blomberg, Counsel, Beckett Law and Mike Berry, Deputy General Counsel, First Liberty Institute

with additional workshops as well as a variety of exhibitors and military recruiters.

Also, attendees have the option to attend special NCMAF events at either the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum or Museum of the Bible. NCMAF is sponsoring tours to these museums on Monday morning. Costs include entry, a museum guide, and a WMATA Metro Card with pre-loaded round trip fare. (Attendees must register for the special events by December 31, 2018 so that arrangements can be made with the museums. The tours will happen simultaneously, so please only choose one option.) 

Hotel reservations for the Crystal Gateway Marriott can be made here.
(Note: Hotel room costs are not included in the conference fees. NCMAF conference hotel rates are $159 per night.)

We ask that everyone register as soon as possible but no later than Friday, January 4, 2019.
