2020 DOVE International

Leadership Conference

Oct. 26-28, 2020

Sandy Cove, North East, Maryland, USA →

The theme of our 2020 conference is “There’s More!” We will focus on God’s amazing faithfulness through the past forty years and rejoice in what is in store for the future: more healing, more salvations, more provision, more disciples, more restoration, more churches, more kingdom business, more miracles, more power, more anointing, more missionaries, more nations, more Holy Spirit fire.


Be refreshed as you renew vision by coming to the conference

Come and be refreshed

Come expecting to receive an impartation from the Lord through church leaders from throughout the world. Larry and LaVerne Kreider and other DOVE family leaders will share the Word of God with us. Prophetic ministry and workshops will be available in the afternoons. Through teaching, prayer, workshops, worship, prophetic ministry and fellowship you will be refreshed. Strategic partnerships will be built to advance God’s kingdom as leaders from more than 20 nations come together.

All DOVE family leaders are welcome

This conference is for leaders and potential leaders in the DOVE family, including elders, pastors, fivefold ministers, youth leaders, small group leaders and assistants. Current and potential leaders, both young and old, are welcome to participate. Friends of DOVE are also invited.

Partial scholarships available

We want to encourage the next generation of leaders to join us at this year’s 2020 International Leadership Conference. Partial scholarships are available for leaders ages 16 to 24 who attend the entire conference. For information, email info@dcfi.org

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

Ephesians 3:20-21
