The ACT Gathering

Held at YWAM San Diego/Baja - January 11-15, 2016

Please join us for the upcoming North American Western Area Circle Team (NAW-ACT) family gathering. Our theme will be “Mission True”, living out our foundational values and beliefs in fulfilling the Great Commission of Jesus Christ as a global movement. 

Darlene Cunningham will be joining us as our keynote speaker.

The conference begins January 11 with dinner and ends January 15 after breakfast. The conference fee is $140.00 per person, which covers transportation to and from the San Diego airport, bus station, etc., to the San Antonio del Mar campus, all meals and break times, and honorarium and travel for Darlene Cunnigham. There are additional charges for housing. The on-campus housing costs $80 (or $20 per night) and is dormitory style and includes all bedding and a private bathroom in each room. Private rooms are also available for individuals and couples at the nearby Real del Mar Hotel (5 minutes drive from the campus), costing $82 per night, per room including taxes. The first night's room charge will be payed at the time of registration. Remaining nights will be paid by each participant at the time of check in at the Hotel. Only one person per room is required to pay for the first night's accommodation during registration, with other persons in their room choosing the option of 'own arrangements' on the registration form. 

Who should attend this gathering? 

The gathering is designed for leaders, leadership councils or elderships, school leaders, emerging leaders and thematic and historical leaders in the NAW-ACT area. Space is limited to 300 people. We are not encouraging people to bring DTS students or volunteers or newer YWAM staff, but to focus on bringing a broad range of leaders from your ministry (both existing and emerging). Please prayerfully consider who should attend from your location.

Young Leaders Pre-Event

Are you under 35 years of age and have been in YWAM for a minimum of 5 years and feel called to YWAM long-term? Then this invitation is to you. There will be a pre-event for young leaders who will be able to meet with Darlene and other senior leaders in the Mission in a smaller setting. Our aim is to form a circle of relationships with these young leaders and spur on healthy growth. 

For those attending the Young Leaders pre-event, please plan your arrival for Saturday, January 9 by 4:00pm. Our first session will start on Saturday at 7pm and we will conclude Monday, January 11 with lunch. The main gathering starts with dinner on Monday night. Content for the younger leaders gathering will include worship, teaching from Darlene, discussion and great fellowship.
