Tabernacles Conference Details

May 23, 2020

Dates: October 9-11, 2020

Here is additional information about the upcoming Tabernacles Conference. I was very pleased that my colleague, Dr. Stephen Jones, booked the same location that I had initially booked for our Passover-Resurrection Conference. Pleased because he and I (and a number of other brethren and “sistren” {LOL}) had discerned insights on the possible spiritual reasons why the Father led us to arrange the Conference there in Knox-ville and at the Clarion Inn & Suites. Stephen’s organization, God’s Kingdom Ministries, will be handling all the arrangements for Tabernacles. The remainder of this post is almost verbatim from a flier Stephen will be mailing to his list next week. (So I take no responsibility for his adding the honorary title to Ron Oja’s name below—but I am in full agreement…and so is Ron! LOL!)


The Clarion Inn & Suites, 5335 Central Avenue Pike, Knoxville, TN 37912.

This is the same hotel that had been secured for a Passover conference in April. That conference was cancelled because of the lockdown in Tennessee. Hopefully, we will not have the same problem in October. There is an airport in Knoxville, if anyone anticipates traveling by air—and if the airlines are not bankrupt or grounded.

There is no hotel shuttle service. If you do not have transportation, you will probably have to get a taxi at the airport. It is about a 20-minute drive from the airport to the hotel.

Meeting Times:

The conference will begin at 9 a.m. on Friday, October 9, 2020. We will set up electronic equipment Thursday evening, assuming that the hotel has not rented out that time to another group. We will break for lunch about noon each day and give everyone at least 2 hours to eat and have fellowship. We will then have two more sessions in the afternoon and one or two more in the evenings.

Sunday afternoon will be a more informal time to allow the Holy Spirit to do His unexpected things without our agenda getting in the way. We have done this for the past few years and have found it to be the highlight of the conferences.


Confirmed speakers are:

Dr. James Bruggeman of Stone Kingdom Ministries

Ron Oja, Doctor of Scatology

Pastor Diane Padilla of Questa, New Mexico

Dr. Stephen Jones of God’s Kingdom Ministries

Rob Corry is yet unconfirmed.

Hotel Reservations:

The hotel has given us the special room rate of $69 per night. (With tax it will come to about $80.) The price is the same for one king bed or two queens. They are all non-smoking rooms with coffee maker, refrigerator, microwave, and free wifi. The hotel also has an indoor heated swimming pool, fitness center, and a business center.

Up to 4 pets are allowed at $25/night. I don’t know if that is $25 EACH or for all pets.

You may call 877-424-6423 for reservations and tell them you are coming for the God’s Kingdom Ministries Bible conference. Or you can book a room online and see pictures of the rooms here:

If you want to come early or stay later, you may have to call them to make the adjustment and get the $69 rate for the extra day or days.

There are two Clarion Inns in the Knoxville area, so be sure to make note of the correct address at the top of this cover letter.

Restaurants in the Area:

The Clarion has a restaurant and bar and offer free hot breakfasts for those staying at the hotel. There are two more restaurants across the street, including an Applebees. For those with transportation, it is a 5-minute drive to the downtown area, which has many other places to eat.

On behalf of Dr. Jones and myself, we hope to see many of our long-time friends there and we especially welcome those whom we have never met. Let’s get acquainted! See you there!
