There are two types of events in the FORGE Network -- The FORGE conference and  FORGE connection lunches. Below you can read about each one and navigate to each event's page. Please feel free to contact Tony Wolfe if you have any questions.

FORGE Paul/Timothy Conference

The FORGE Conference takes place once a year and rotates through the state with the SBTC Annual Meeting. This event is a large scale event for anyone to attend. The conference is free, but the participant is responsible for meals and travel. Each year, a panel of pastors will discuss different topics about every aspect of ministry. The conference will also include Q & A sessions, worship services, vendors, and spotlights on FORGE pastors. The conference will move around the state.

Join us Sunday evening and Monday for the FORGE Conference and walk right into the Annual Meeting Monday evening and Tuesday!
