Welcome to Metro Single Pastors Conference
[Pictured: A portion of the 2017 Metro attendees]
Greetings, I hope you are ready for Metro, a single minister's conference. If you are new or a veteran in the single adult ministry world, please know that this year’s conference will truly be a time of encouragement, rest, and invigoration. We come together to celebrate all that God has done and prayerfully consider how God will move through us in the days ahead! This is a conference FOR single adult ministers put on BY single adult ministers to minister TO single adult ministers. It’s the anti-conference conference you have been waiting for.
2018 Single Minister’s Metro Conference will take place July 10-14 in beautiful Black Mountain, NC at the Ridgecrest Conference Center!! Ridgecrest is in the Blue Ridge Mountains just outside of The Great Smokey Mountain National Park! This will be the first time Single Minister’s Metro has ever been at Ridgecrest! Let me tell you - Ridgecrest is a different kind of GORGEOUS! Of course there are all kinds of site seeing places, hiking opportunities, white water rafting adventures, zip lining screaming adventures all in the shadows of the Great Smoky Mountains!
But the best part of Single Minister’s Metro Conference is YOU! Seriously!!! Reconnecting with ministry friends and fellowshipping with the newbies is truly invigorating and the highlight of these four days together. Since we minister to all ages and ranges of single adults, our the time together at Metro is especially rich! My family and I have come for 18 years so I know personally the value of stopping for a few days to listen, share, pray and to be mutually encouraged by one another not to mention be with my wife and kids. I love to gain advice and insight from fellow ministers.
The conference is not a packed full “fire-hydrant” of information conference that you walk away more of a wreck than when you came. You will have time to visit, pray and discuss the concerns that you and your ministry are encountering. We encourage families to come and for you to connect or re-connect after all of the long hours of ministry. If appropriate you can also bring key staff and volunteer leaders! As a bonus there will be great inspiring guest speakers.
Take the time and sign up now. The space is seriously limited so don’t delay! A non-refundable deposit of $250 by May 15th, 2018 to hold your room [deposit is transferable]. Register by clicking here.
Hope to see you in Black Mountain, NC!! Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any other questions!
Thanks, Don Munton

Kristi and I have attended the Metro Singles Conference several times, now, and each year we continue to glean helpful new insights into effective ministry to Single Adults. The more I learn about Singles ministry, the more I realize that there’s so much more to learn! But, that’s what Metro is all about. It’s “iron sharpening iron.” It’s allowing our comrades in ministry to not only enlighten us, but to speak encouragement into our lives as well. The Metro Singles Conference is always a wonderful time of refreshing (both professionally and personally) and of fellowship with some really special people who love the Lord and love Singles.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
