What is the M.E. Conference?

The Missionary Enrichment (M.E.) Conference is for ABWE missionaries home on furlough to:

  • Reconnect (or begin connecting) with the ABWE family
  • Be refreshed, both spiritually and physically
  • Renew their commitment to what God has called them to do
  • Find resources to help them minister effectively

This Year in Lancaster!

Location: Lancaster Marriott at Penn Square

This year the conference will be held in Lancaster, just 45 minutes south east of the ABWE Home Office. Since it's so (relatively) close, we would like for each of the Home Office staff to get a chance to attend this year. While not mandatory, we strongly encourage you to talk with your supervisory about which morning session you can attend.

Morning Sessions

Home Office Staff can choose to attend one of the two morning sessions:

  • Tuesday, July 18th
  • Wednesday, July 19th

Transportation | 6:45am Departure

All staff attending that day (either Tuesday or Wednesday) will meet at 6:45 am and then take the ABWE vans to Lancaster. You will be able to enjoy breakfast with the missionaries and the morning session, which will conclude at 12:00 pm. After the morning session you will be free to make your way back to Harrisburg.

Please note: lunch is not included. You may want to either bring a lunch or plan to get something to eat on the way back to Harrisburg.

Hourly Employees

For hourly employees, we are asking that you keep this to a normal 8 hour work day and begin clocking hours at 6:45 am and then please leave the office around 3:45 pm to avoid overtime.

Candidate Classes

Some exciting news this year is that the Monday night session, July 17th, will include the Candidate Recognition service.

Evening Sessions

Staff members are also encouraged to bring their families to the evening sessions or dinner with the missionaries. If you are interested in joining the missionaries for dinner prior to attending an evening session, please e-mail Dinner will be at your cost. The Home Office will not be paying for evening meals.

Registration by June 30th

All registrations must be received by June 30th.
