2024 Annual Meeting

April 29 - May 1 · Glen Eyrie Castle
Glen Eyrie

Please join us in late April for PCP’s Annual Meeting in Colorado Springs, CO, when we’ll return to the beautiful Glen Eyrie Castle and Conference Center.



PCP members labor in a unique and sometimes lonely profession. Our network brings together colleagues from over 100 foundations who share a common faith in Christ, a longing to help bring his hope and healing to broken places in the world, and a a desire to learn and grow in the profession so we can do this work better today than we did yesterday. We seek to learn from and with one another in community, and the annual meeting is one of the best ways to do that — a rich time of sharpening, networking, and encouraging —  and a highlight of the year not to be missed!

This year we have the extraordinary opportunity to hear from Dr. Dan Allender, author, professor, and founder of the Allender Center at the Seattle School of Theology and Psychology. Dan is an expert on trauma and a pioneer of a unique and innovative approach in responding to it. Trauma has a huge impact on the communities our grantee partners serve and on nonprofit leaders themselves, even when their work is not direct trauma-care. What do we and our partners need to understand about trauma in order to work effectively in these contexts? What does trauma do to individuals and communities, and how might that affect the kinds of change we hope for? How can we walk alongside our partners when they are dealing with their own trauma? Finally, how does God think and do about trauma? We look forward to exploring these questions in a couple of sessions with Dr. Allender.

Additionally, we’ll have multiple sessions in which we’ll learn from PCP members’ deep wisdom and experience through panels, presentations, breakout topics, and smaller group discussion. We’ll discuss current trends, spiritual formation, occupational hazards, lessons learned, and so much more. You’ll get glimpses into your PCP colleagues’ expertise, talents and interests and, as is our custom, we’ll go out on the second night for dinner and evening fun and networking. Of course, we’ll also take advantage of our retreat-like location to give ample space for reflection and opportunity for us to directly sharpen one another.
