If you're a pastor or church leader, we would be thrilled to have you join us for our annual one-day conference, A Noble Task.

At Brainard, we believe the work of Christian ministry is immensely valuable and honorable: truly, a noble task - 1 Timothy 3:1. As such, A Noble Task Pastor's Conference is designed to serve, encourage, equip and refresh pastors and church leaders like you.
