Pastors and Leaders Conference (PALCON)

PALCON 2024 | June 25–27

One Heart: Blessing, Bringing, Becoming

Mount Vernon Nazarene University is delighted to host this conference on our campus June 25-27, 2024. The MVNU PALCON planning committee invites all full- and part-time clergy AND their families to attend. In addition to keynote speakers and workshop presenters focused on your pastor’s spiritual and leadership development, we are providing age-appropriate programming for the children/teens of your pastor’s family led by members of our faculty, MVNU Field NYI, and children ministries professionals. Spouses of clergy will be offered opportunities for spiritual renewal and personal growth as well.

Due to generous sponsors there is no programmatic registration fee for children/youth.


There is a special luncheon planned for women in ministry. Advance reservation and payment is required and can be made on the same site as children and youth registrations. It will have its own unique page.
