1. Who’s invited?
If you are a UPCI North American Missionary/Church Planter, an invitation letter will be sent to you and we do ask you to register to be our guest! Registration will open February 1, 2019 online and will remain open until maximum capacity is reached. Note-Registering does not guarantee you will be sponsored to attend the conference. We will notify all applicants whether or not you have been approved to attend as our guest. Following approval, you will receive a packet of information including your hotel confirmation, details on reimbursement for travel, schedule, location of meals, and child care information.
2. What are the Dates and Conference Schedule?
Because the need to impart into our North American Missionaries is great, the vision of Pastors Jerry & Jason Dillon has always been multiple locations throughout North America. We are pleased to announce that there are now two locations for The Apostolic Conference: Madison, MS and TAC North in Janesville, WI!

5. How do you get here?

Once you arrive and check in, we will provide all transportation for the duration of the conference. We look forward to meeting you!
6. What about my kids?
We welcome the addition of children at our conferences! We understand that the missions field includes the entire family. In preparation for their arrival, we have prepared age appropriate activities, food, and services with special speakers just for your children. Infants up to Grade 6 will have separate classes and services to attend while the parents are involved in the services (day and evening sessions). Teens Grades 7-12 are invited to participate in some of the main services with their parents to experience the worship, Word, and move of the Spirit during these times. In addition, special teen-only events with guest speakers are also planned during the week. The Apostolic Conference is a family friendly environment!
Because of limited space and the preplanning required for daytime activities, ONLY the children of the NAMs approved to attend TAC will be included in the daytime services. However, during the evening services, children's services are open to anyone attending.
