Omega Ministries Fellowship Luncheon 2015

About 40 senior and/or retired ministers and guests were present on Saturday, September 12, for the 2015 Omega Ministries Fellowship Lunch. The event was held at The Crown Center in Oklahoma City. Pastors John and Anne Youell proved to be gracious and accommodating hosts.

Vintage table décor reinforced this year’s theme, “Remember When,” as did the singing of old, but familiar, songs led by Jim Bratcher and activities that caused us to recall some things with fondness. Other memories sparked gladness in our hearts that we don’t have to do “that” again.

Heartland Conference School of Ministry 2017-2019

As fall is approaching and we all begin to settle back in to a routine, I wanted to take an opportunity to remind you about the

Heartland Conference School of Ministry.  

What is the Heartland Conference School of Ministry? 

It is a two year program in which you will be equipped to serve as a leader in a healthy church. You could even be serving as a senior pastor.

Overview and Requirements

The Heartland School of Ministry is a 16 –course program to train ministers, ministerial candidates , and lay leaders. We operate on a 2-year cycle with 8 classes per year (September –November and January-May). The format is modular, so classes may be taken in any order.

Each course includes reading, pre-class assignment(s) and an exciting class taught by experts in the subject matter. Those who complete the School of Ministry receive a diploma and qualify for ministerial licensing in the Heartland Conference.

You can choose to audit—enjoy the classroom interaction without the pre-class assignment or receiving a grade.

There are no formal academic requirements for admission to the school, but a pastoral recommendation is required.

Class Structure

Classes meet once a month on a Friday evening and Saturday. On the Friday, check-in and dinner begin at 6:00, and a class typically runs from 7:00-9:30. Saturdays feature a breakfast beginning 30 minutes before class begins (normal start time for class is 9:00 but is subject to change).

Dress is casual and snacks are served during the class sessions.

School of Ministry students are entitled to stay in the conference dorms for a low cost.


Classes are held at the Heartland Conference Retreat Center at I40 and Anderson Rd in Oklahoma
