One of the most enjoyable and encouraging parts of my travel around the United States and across the world is meeting people whose lives have been changed by the work of White Horse Inn. It’s a great blessing to me to speak to believers in the Philippines, Brazil, and Germany and hear the same stories and sentiments that I hear from friends in Louisiana, Massachusetts, and California. It’s a humbling reminder that when Kim, Ken, Rod, and I gather around a microphone, we’re really engaging in conversations that make a difference—an eternal difference in the lives, families, and churches of friends like you.

Recently, our board of directors determined to host an annual meeting of our closest friends and supporters. Even though we often run into you at other events hosted by other organizations, we wanted an opportunity to spend dedicated time in conversation and fellowship with those who have done the most to help White Horse Inn succeed over the last twenty years. So, coming up July 26-27, 2013, we plan to gather together in San Diego for two days of teaching, fellowship, sharing meals, and planning for the future of White Horse Inn.  We’re intentionally limiting the size of our gathering to just 100 people so that we can ensure that we will all be able to enjoy our time together as a company of friends. With such an intimate group, it is imperative that we receive your registration as soon as possible.

I’m also excited to let you know that we’ll be filming and recording our time together for use in a study kit that we are developing for release in late 2013. Our new president, Mark Green, has focused all of our energies on turning our content into bite-sized kits that can be used in Sunday school, home fellowship groups, and even personal study. With these new study kits, we’ll have an even better opportunity to change the conversation in our churches, living rooms, and neighborhoods by introducing our friends and family to the rich resources of the Reformation.

In order to cover our expenses and produce the best content we can, we’ve set the conference fee at $298 per person (discounted to $589 per couple), which includes two meals during your stay. Don’t delay and register today. The Paradise Point Resort in Mission Bay is our host. You’ll make your room reservations directly with them. They’ve set aside a block of rooms just for us for $249 per night. These rooms have either one king or two queen beds. You can also upgrade into more spacious suites or bay front rooms for a little bit extra.

You may want to bring the kids and extend your stay in San Diego this summer. Our conference hotel is just a short water taxi ride away from Sea World! The property also has an onsite marina where you can rent sailboats or try your hand at paddle boarding. We’ll be just a few minutes from downtown San Diego and the world famous San Diego Zoo. The same nightly rate extends out three days before and after our conference, so take advantage of our beautiful city and make a vacation out of it!
