City:
At the 2024 Renegade Pastors Conference, you’ll join Nelson Searcy and your fellow Senior Pastors LIVE in-person at a new location in the Tampa Bay area, Florida. (Yes you’ll enjoy beautiful weather in Florida, with easy access to lots of restaurants and entertainment.)

Venue and Accommodations:
The event will be held at a church hosted by one of our coaching members in a suburb of Tampa Bay, Florida.   

For privacy, security and quality concerns, the exact venue location is revealed only to those who are registered. 

Travel:
The host church and nearby hotels are within 35-45 minutes of the Tampa International Airport (TPA). You can also search flights at St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport (PIE) but that is an hour away.  

The Tampa Bay area is ride-share friendly with Uber and Lyft, so you won’t need to rent a vehicle to enjoy your experience, but plenty of rental car agencies are available.

The 2024 conference runs three days from Wednesday, February 28, starting at 9:30am, through Friday, March 1 at 12:30pm (making it easy to travel out the last day)

We will provide a full refund for conference cancellations up to 91 days prior to the event. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide refunds for Live Event registrations within 90 days of the event due to operational costs and event location and speaker contracts. Your spot also locks out another pastor from attending. However, your ticket may be transferred to another staff member without penalty.

In the event that the conference must be canceled for circumstances beyond our control (e.g. natural disaster, fire, terrorism, war, infectious disease, government travel restrictions, etc.) registrations are non-refundable. Much like when traveling on vacation or overseas, we recommend consideration of travel insurance to safeguard against loss.

The Renegade Pastors Network with Nelson Searcy provides a 100% Money Back Guarantee — if you aren’t completely satisfied with the impact of this conference after attending and engaging on Day 1, just let Nelson know anytime before the end of Day 1 and you’ll be completely refunded.
