Spiritual Caregivers Conference
Join American Baptist Home Mission Societies at the Spiritual Caregivers Conference
The Spiritual Caregivers Conference—September 19-20, 2022—is an opportunity for chaplains, pastoral counselors, spiritual directors, and others who are discerning a call to these professions, to gather for two days in community.
It is a time of holistic renewal. At the beautiful Westin Kansas City at Crown Center there will be opportunities to network, sharpen our skills, explore trends in the professions, connect through intentional periods of spiritual reflections, celebrate one another, fellowship, lament and laugh. Enjoy time to visit exhibits, purchase books, create new friendships, renew old relationships, and depart renewed and revived!
