About the Conference
Born out of a desire to minister to pastors and their wives serving in pioneer areas, MacArthur Blvd has hosted the Ron Dunn Encourager Conference since 1975. The goal of the conference has always been to encourage and refresh guest couples and send them back with a renewed commitment to advance the kingdom.
We bring in pioneer pastor couples from across the country. While they are here, they will attend the conference as honored guests. Our responsibility as a church body is to welcome, love, encourage and pray for these couples.
Year after year we have been privileged to see the change in couples who have arrived with a countenance which is “beaten down,” only to see these same couples leave glowing in the Lord with hearts full of encouragement and gratitude. It is often difficult to determine who receives the greatest blessing from the conference—the guest pastors and wives or the church body.
