9Marks Weekender at Mount Vernon Baptist Church (2024)
Our Weekender is designed to serve pastors, seminarians, and church leaders through humbly demonstrating the elements of a healthy church.
About this Event

Why attend a Weekender?

We believe that a strong philosophy of ministry is better "caught" than "taught." While many church leaders may be drawn to certain biblical principles, they might not know how those principles should manifest themselves in a local church. Moreover, they might not feel equipped in how to implement those principles. While we don't expect all Weekender attendees to agree with or embrace everything at Mount Vernon, we think this event is a good opportunity to show the building blocks of how to build a healthy church.

Who should attend a Weekender?

Though women are welcome to the Weekender, most of the content is oriented toward elders/pastors and those pursuing vocational ministry. Seminarians, aspiring pastors, and motivated church members are welcome.

We do ask that those who register for the Weekender stay for the event in its entirety. Those who plan to leave early might be taking that spot of someone who would get more out of the Weekender.
