Why do you take a family vacation?
To rest … to have time together and build memories … to see another part of the world …
What if you and your family could take a vacation together that does all of that, but that also allows you to build professional skills AND stronger family relationships that endure even after you’ve returned home and unpacked your suitcases?

You can. That is one of the principles behind the Ministry Insights Equipping Conference, a powerful hands-on event that has inspired hundreds of Christians to embrace differences and build stronger marriages and families.
A Family Getaway for Fun
Attending a conference is a terrific way to combine family fun and strengthening with professional continuing education.
For example, this year’s equipping conference is to be hosted at the beautiful Four Seasons Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona in what is the ideal getaway destination for busy families.
Its secluded private resort setting is adjacent to Pinnacle Peak Park, loaded with family-friendly hiking trails and guides, and near to historic McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park known for train rides, carrousel fun, and playgrounds. Consider, too, the resort’s Family Activities, from Movie Night to the old-fashioned Sundae Bar and of course the pool and spa. While you attend sessions, your kids have full access to Kids for All Seasons, the resort’s children’s camp, which hosts complimentary activities for children all year round. Nearby Troon North Golf Club and its Family Golf Program make the game more accessible for junior and family golfers.
Affordable? Yes. In special agreement with the host, rates start at just $125 per suite. At a 5-star resort? Yep. And kids eat free. (And for a limited time – until June 30 only – you can get an extra 10% discount from Ministry Insights when you use offer code CONFSPECIAL16.)
A Family-Building Experience
In addition to having family fun, an equipping conference vacation allows you to acquire professionals skills. You can take the Leading From Your Strengths profile and attend sessions to discover and use your strengths.You can even go a step further by attending additional sessions for certification and learn how to build a ministry using the profiles.
If your spouse and other family members register for the conference, you can attend together and build a stronger marriage and family. The enormous benefit here is discovering how you and your family members complete one another. “I once heard a man say there are two basic emotions in the world: love and hate. He then said love cures hate. The conference reminded me of this,” said Jonathan S., one of last year’s conference participants. “The devil’s scheme is not only to isolate us from each other but especially from the truth of God and God Himself.”
What would your life be like if you, your spouse, and your family came home from this summer’s vacation with a deep appreciation for the differences between you? Rather than experiencing isolation and division, you draw closer and closer. You discover appreciation for each other. You move forward with a sense of unity.
You might just look back at this vacation as a turning point for your family.
It can happen for you as it did for Melanie, a past participant. “My strengths were affirmed,” she said. “I learned I am valued for being a child of God, a unique part of the body of Christ, and an important member of my family.”
