    The PCPA Annual Conference will be held at The Sanctuary, a United Pentecostal Church in suburban St. Louis only about a 15-minute drive from the St. Louis Lambert International airport.


    We will offer:

    • Two plenary sessions with keynotes in each and a panel discussion on post-pandemic faith formation trends. 
    • A baker's dozen (13) of engaging, interactive workshops on a wide range of important topics related to publishing, technology and faith-trends from which you will select three. 
    • Time for peer-group gatherings so you can share ideas with others in roles similar to yours. 
    • Plenty of networking opportunities during coffee breaks, a Thursday evening appetizer reception and lunch on Friday.
    • Displays hosted by our PCPA Adjunct Members where you can meet current and prospective vendors, ask questions, and learn about their new products and services. 

    For 2023 this will be an in-person only conference. Most of our keynotes and workshops will be recorded. Recordings will be gratis for personal use only for all who register to attend the conference. There is also an option for member companies to purchase access to the recordings for use by their entire staff.

    Video Recordings:


    Individual Use Recordings:

    All who register for the Annual Conference will receive gratis links to view the video recordings of the rich line-up of keynote speeches and workshops. These recordings will be for the individual registrant's use only.


    We expect that nearly all, if not all, of our presenters will give us permission to record their sessions. Some of the workshops, however, will be highly interactive and hands-on so may not lend themselves to being of value to watch as recordings.


    Group Use Recordings:

    PCPA Members also have a unique new opportunity to purchase access to all of our PCPA 2023 Annual Conference video recordings to use as training and development tools with their own staff members. The price for this group use option is $799.

    Please go to the registration website to purchase this helpful collection of recordings for your team!
