National Equipped Conference 2024

What Is The Gospel?

Proclaiming a biblical gospel

June 14-16, 2024 at the New Braunfels (TX) Civic Center

It is imperative that we understand what God’s word says about how one becomes a disciple of Christ and thus a child of God. We cannot truncate, sterilize, simplify, adjust or in any other way modify the message of the gospel that was once and for all delivered to God’s people in God’s word. We will not shy away from clearly articulating God’s truth on heaven, hell, sin, judgment, repentance and faith. It will be our goal to hold tightly to a biblical gospel.

The National Equipped Conference takes place bi-annually and is hosted by the Compass Church Planting Association (headquartered in Aliso Viejo, California). The conference aims to provide needed tools and godly strategies to help Christians to “Proclaim” a Biblical Gospel in these turbulent times.

Conference FAQs

General

WHO CAN ATTEND?

The NEC is designed to encourage and equip the church for greater effectiveness and service. If this sounds like something you need, then this conference is for you.

WHAT DOES THE REGISTRATION FEE COVER?

The registration fee covers admission to all plenary sessions and breakouts, plus conference materials.

WILL THERE BE A LIVESTREAM TICKET OPTION?

There will not be a livestream option. We encourage you to join us in-person for the conference.

Lodging

CAN I STAY AT A HOTEL OTHER THAN THE ONES LISTED ON THE WEBSITE?

Yes. We have chosen the hotel listed on our website because they are within a 5-10 minute drive of the conference location, and we were able to negotiate special rates. There are certainly more hotels, as well as AirBnB and VRBO options, but they do not offer the conference rates and we can’t predict availability.

Travel

NEC cannot arrange transportation but the airport offers numerous transportation options.

WHERE SHOULD I PARK?

The New Braunfels (TX) Civic Center has onsite parking available.
