McKendree Village in Nashville, Tennessee is a continuing care retirement community offering senior adults three levels of outstanding residential living.  Founded by the Tennessee Conference of the United Methodist Church, but presently owned and operated by Nashville Senior Care, LLC.,  McKendree is celebrating 50 years of providing quality retirement living and health care services for senior adults in a secure, faith affirming environment.

McKendree Village has graciously offered to provide five scholarships to needy participants.  They will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis - we encourage only those who truly need it to apply. Please send requests to Teri Temple at ttemple001@luthersem.edu. Requests must be made by Friday, February 15th, 2013.

McKendree Village will receive the chosen names and contact information of those receiving the scholarships. A McKendree Village representative will contact those selected to receive the scholarships and congratulate them.

McKendree Village has also offered to provide lodging on the campus and meals in our resident dining room for a limited number of pastors who might need help with these arrangements in order to attend the conference.   They have several guest suites available and pastors should contact Rev. Dr. Joel Emerson, Director of Pastoral Care at (615) 871-8843 to inquire about availability.  McKendree Village will also be providing transportation from our campus to the downtown venues throughout the week.
