Who can attend PALCON?
While PALCON is designed especially for all Nazarene clergy, non-clergy spouses are welcome as are individuals preparing for ministry or in the process of discerning a call to vocational ministry. Clergy from other denominations may attend as well, in hopes that the conference will inspire and equip them.

How much is the per person cost to attend PALCON?
Full-conference registration varies from year to year but is consistent across the various PALCON venues in a given year. Select “Registration” button for the PALCON you wish to attend to see pricing (including early-bird options) and to register to attend PALCON at that location. This price includes access to all plenary sessions, workshops, and 7 meals beginning with the evening meal on the opening day. On-campus housing for three nights is available to all full-conference registrants for no additional cost.

Is there a discounted rate for spouses?
The rate for a spouse of a full-conference registrant is normally discounted (select “Registration” for the PALCON you wish to attend to see current pricing). We strongly urge couples to register early since housing for married couples is limited at some venues.

When does the early-bird rate expire?
Normally, rates increase 30-45 days ahead of each PALCON event.

Is there a single-day rate?
Yes. A single-day rate is available (select “Registration” for the PALCON you wish to attend to see current pricing). ,With the exception of the opening day of the conference, the single-day rate includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner for that calendar day. On-campus housing may be available to single-day registrants at some venues for an additional fee if requested in advance of the conference. To explore this possibility,

Is there a live-stream rate?
At this time, the conference is not live-streamed.

Since the PALCON I plan to attend offers family programming, what is the cost and the process for registering my child?
PALCON venues offering family programming provide a separate registration portal for your participating family members. Pricing for family programming varies from venue to venue as do the age-range and program elements. IMPORTANTLY, you must first register yourself to attend PALCON before you will be able to successfully register a child. Select “Registration” for the PALCON you wish to attend to learn more and to see current pricing for family programming.

When is the registration deadline?
The full-conference registration option remains open until the first day of the event. However, the availability of on-campus housing is assured only for registrations made more than 10 days prior to the first day of the event.

What is the registration refund policy?
You may receive a full refund if you cancel more than 10 days prior to the first day of the event you had planned to attend. Otherwise, you will be refunded 50% of the cost of your registration. If you find you must cancel your registration due to extenuating circumstances, please contact us at


What are the options for overnight lodging?
On-campus housing is available at no extra charge to those who purchase a full-conference registration. Rooms are double-occupancy. In some settings, rooms are single occupancy with a shared common space and shared showers/restrooms. Participants wishing to stay off-campus are responsible for making their own arrangements. You will have the opportunity to select or decline on-campus housing during the online registration process.

If I take advantage of the option to stay on-campus, do I need to bring linens (bedding and towels)?
Possibly. It depends on the venue. Unless you see specifics related to linens included in the registration information for the PALCON you plan to attend, you can assume that bedding and towels are included.

Is there some adjustment to the registration rate if I choose to not stay on campus?
Although there is certainly an expense in offering on-campus housing to all full-conference registrants, it is offered at no charge. For this reason, there is no adjustment to the cost of registration for those deciding to stay off-campus. Any participant wishing to stay off-campus need only indicate this preference during the registration process.

May I specify the person I would like to room with?
Yes, by all means! During the online registration process, you will have an opportunity to enter the name of the person you wish to be your roommate. You can also indicate you would like to be assigned a roommate.

What if I wish to stay on campus but need an accessible room or a single room?
You will have the opportunity during the registration process to make special requests concerning on-campus housing. We realize there are some instances when single occupancy may be necessary. You may indicate this request on your registration. Be fully assured we will make every effort to accommodate your request. If you make such a request, you will receive a separate communication from us on this matter.

My spouse is coming with me. Are there housing options available for married couples?
The amount of on-campus housing for married couples varies from venue to venue. Early registration is strongly encouraged if you wish to take advantage of the on-campus housing available to full-conference registrants.

What are the housing arrangements for my family?
At PALCONs offering programming for families, on-campus housing for families will be available provided registration is completed at least 10 days in advance of the start of the PALCON attended.

A NOTE ABOUT INFANTS: If you are bringing your infant son or daughter, please indicate this in the Special Needs section when completing the online registration. Every effort will be made to provide an appropriate on-campus housing option.
