Tabernacles Conference 2015
Chateau on the Lake
Branson, Missouri

The Tabernacles conference this year will be at the Chateau on the Lake in Branson, Missouri.

It will begin Friday morning, October 2, 2015 and end Sunday evening, October 4.

Our Passover conference, held in April this year, was four days long, so we were able to hear more speakers. Our Tabernacles conference, however, will be just three days, so some alterations will have to be made with fewer speakers.

I have yet to determine who will be speaking. Of course, I will be there, and James Bruggeman, since these are always joint conferences between us, regardless of who actually organizes them. Mark Eaton has already consented to be another speaker. I talked to him last month at Pentecost in Dallas. More will be added later.

We are planning to arrive a couple days early to see some of the shows in Branson or perhaps go to Silver Dollar City. The hotel’s room rate is normally $179/day, but we have secured it for the special rate of $119/day. This is still a bit more than average rates at conferences in the past, but consider that we are going to be on beautiful lake in Branson, MO at the height of tourist season.

Things to do in Branson

Our local contacts, who found this hotel for us and secured the contract, sent me some links. They wrote this:

Here are some things we have done in Branson recently.  Branson is very family friendly so plenty to do, but these we feel are worth the time and money.

Currently Sight and Sound theatre is showing Jonah at the Branson location.  Fun experience with live animals and a stage which wraps around the audience on three sides.  Everyone from small Children to adults will enjoy the show.

Dixie Stampede is another live show with trick horses and dinner.  It is pricey, but if you think of it as both dinner and entertainment, it’s not too bad.  Dinner does not come with utensils, you have to eat with your hands, but it isn’t too bad, roasted Cornish hen, potato strips, corn on the cob, etc.  Although they try to gear it to all ages, kids really enjoy the show.

We all like to go out on the lake on an old style paddle boat.  Should be beautiful this time of year with the fall colors.  Lots of wild life to see as well along the banks.

 Another show with dinner which is generally good.  We saw this last Christmas, so it had a religious Christmas theme.  Have not seen it during its regular time.


To make reservations online, go to this link:

You can also call the Chateau on the Lake at


to make room reservations 7 days a week, 8am -7pm. No code is needed, only the dates and name of the event (i.e., God’s Kingdom Ministry Conference).

If you called earlier and heard that you would have to clear your reservation with me, please try again. That was a glitch on their part, which they have since corrected.

Technical Matters

The meeting room has been made available to us Thursday evening (Oct. 1) so that the sound system can be set up the evening before the start of the conference. The conference will begin about 9 or 9:30 a.m. Friday, October 2.
