Stone Kingdom Ministries Fall Bible Conference to be held October 25-27, 2019
Once again, we have been able to obtain this beautiful venue for our Conference! If I recall correctly, the Chateau was in the process of being sold when we were there in September 2018. Since then, they have made some changes, one of which is the room rate structure. Last year, we had a one-price rate of $119. This year the rate is $129. However, the rate schedule now increases when there are more than two people in the room, as follows: 3 persons = $149; 4 persons = $169. All prices are per night and before taxes.
The Chateau has a variety of room types for us. They are: Standard King, Standard Double Queens, Mountain View King, Mountain View Double Queens, Partial Lake View King, and Partial Lake View Double Queens. Obviously, the sooner you make your reservation, the better the chance you have of getting your choice of room type. The cut-off date for obtaining these special SKM Group Rates is September 22, 2019.
To make your reservation, call 1-888-333-LAKE (-5253). Let them know you are part of the Stone Kingdom Ministries Conference to obtain the correct rate. If you wish to book online, here is the link that will take you to the Chateau’s online reservations page. https://reservations.travelclick.com/11529?groupID=2568674 Making your reservations through this online portal is only if you are booking a reservation for Thursday through Monday check-out. For those who might wish to come in a few days earlier than Thursday or stay later than a Monday morning check-out you cannot do that through the online link, but you can call and speak with a reservationist to see what is available in the hotel. It is my understanding that the same special rates will apply. (Pending verification of that.) Call the Chateau on the Lake 888-333-5253 room reservations 7 days a week, 8 a.m.—8 p.m. No code is needed; only the dates and name of the event (Stone Kingdom Ministries Fall Bible Conference). For all reservations, a one-night deposit will be charged at the time of booking. Cancellation or changes are only allowed up to two days before check-in date.
To make the Conference accessible to as many people as possible, there is no fee to attend the Conference. Invited and confirmed speakers at this time are: Rob Corry, PA; Stephen Jones, of God’s Kingdom Ministries, MN; Ron Oja, MN; and James Bruggeman, NC. One more pending. We will commence the Conference at 9 a.m. Friday.
Regarding music, years ago I learned the hard way that we simply cannot afford to pay singers and musicians, and so I simply ask anyone who wishes to share their musical talent to contact me so that my volunteer Music Coordinator can work you into the schedule.
In addition to musicians and singers who are willing to volunteer their talents, I am also asking for volunteers to serve in the following capacities: Music Coordinator, Room Share Coordinator, Airport Shuttle (you can limit your time spent and or number of trips as you see fit). If we have no one to volunteer for that, air travelers will need to find their own transportation from the Springfield airport, which is about an hour away. If you wish to volunteer, phone me at 828-277-7733. I will post more about the Conference from time to time.
