2024 Skyland Bible Conference

 The 68th annual Skyland Bible Conference (June 29 - July 5) will be held at Eastern Mennonite University (EMU) in Harrisonburg, VA. 

Continuing the tradition of excellent Bible teaching, the speakers for the 2024 conference will be Mike Attwood, Nate Bramsen and Mark Beebe. If you are looking for a spiritually enriching vacation, rather than mere entertainment, this is your best choice.

Skyland Bible Conference is one of the most unique family oriented Bible conferences you will ever experience. There are activities for all ages. From toddlers to teens to seniors, there is something for everyone.

At Skyland, you can be as active or relaxed as you want to be. Participate in athletic activities, off-site adventures or simply enjoy the fellowship with other believers around the beautiful campus.

Of course, one of the hallmarks of Skyland is the ministry of God’s Word from excellent  speakers. The goal of the conference is to spiritually enrich the lives of everyone who attends.

Skyland is already one of the best family vacation values around. Now there are even more ways to save when coming to the conference.

Family Discount: $75 discount for every family member over 3 members, age 6 and up. So the larger the family, the more you save!

Get $25 off your registrations for every first time conference attendee you encourage to come!

If you would like to attend but feel you cannot pay the full amount, please enclose a note with your registration explaining what you can pay.

Everyone is encouraged to sign up by May 15th so that the conference staff can plan effectively.
