Hotel discounted rates and other amenities are reserved for those who have registered for the Regional Retreat & Spring Planning Meeting. Unfortunately, there’s a history of some that used the discount, yet did not register. While others indicated their intent to register but did not. These actions (or inaction) was out of order and compromised the financial integrity of IWMA. Additionally, problems arose that IWMA will not repeat moving forward. Following your registration, you’ll receive all pertinent information to complete your hotel booking.

Breakfast for hotel guests is included. Also, dinner is provided on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings for all registrants.

It is recommended that you follow the instruction of your Pastor regarding appropriate attire. Casual wear is recommended during the day; yet you may wear pants for the excursion (but not for the night services).

The short answer is NO. As of 2/19/2024, there are no vendor registrations; coupled with logistical challenges at the hotel and the planned excursion to Mall of America, the leadership team has decided to rethink having vendors at this year’s retreat.

All night services are FREE and open to the public.
