WHERE AND WHEN? We will be gathering in Nashville, Tennessee (lovingly named Music City)! The weather is typically beautiful in October. You’ll have an opportunity to experience some of the local flavor of Nashville and to meet some additional members of the PLI/Multipli staff. Air travel is crazy these days, so please book your flights now.

Our business meetings will take place on Friday, October 19 and Saturday, October 20 at the PLI Office.  We will start first thing in the morning and go through dinner (don’t worry, there will be plenty of break time included). At a minimum, book your hotel rooms for Thursday night through Sunday morning (three nights). Here is a link to the current Summary AGENDA.

We do encourage you to stay an extra day through Sunday evening. Plans are underway, but based on those interested, we will set up a great day of exploring Music City. Check out Monday and enjoy an optional fabulous Sunday with your PLI and Multipli friends. Further, the hotel will honor our room rate four days before and after the event (based on availability). 

Our room block is only held until August 19 and our numbers are limited–so book your room now!

Flights: Fly into the Nashville International Airport (BNA). There is a hotel shuttle that will pick you up.

Rental Car: Unless you want to rent a car, it is not necessary. We will provide transportation Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Parking at the hotel is $20/day. A four day car rental is $300 to $400 for a full size car.

PURPOSE AND AGENDA: As you know, the vision of Barnabas is to engage high-capacity leaders accomplished in multiple arenas. Ideas, thoughts for improvements, discussions and financial support are all important. We ask all participants to provide wisdom (James 1:5); counsel (Proverbs 12:15, 15:22, 19:20-21); and to engage in the ministry of PLI and Multipli.

This fall we will continue to focus primarily about the expansion of our ministry while we look back where we’ve been, how we’ve evolved, and where we are going to meet increasing needs. Come ready to think big about the future God has in store for us. Of course, we will give you an update on all the other activities occurring throughout PLI/Multipli – and enjoy some great fellowship.
