Collegiate Conference 2022

With Us


After a time of living in exile God encouraged the Jews to finish rebuilding the house of the Lord by speaking through the prophet Haggai.  God sparked their enthusiasm with two incredible words that cut through the pain of their past, the fear of the present, and uncertainty of their future.  

Then Haggai, the LORD’s messenger, gave this message of the LORD to the people: “I am with you,” declares the LORD.

The great I AM who I AM had not abandoned his people.  He was with them.

As we have returned from our own “pandemic exile” and move to rebuild the house of the Lord on our own campuses, not with stones but with people, let us be encouraged, challenged, and stirred by the words of the great I AM who is….with you!

Transportation


Flying

If you are flying in, the closest airport is the San Antonio International Airport-  9800 Airport Blvd, San Antonio, TX 78216 which is about a 20 minute trip to Leon Springs Baptist Church. Each person is responsible for travel to and from the airport, to their hotel, and the church.


During the Conference

Collegiate will not be providing shuttles to and from each day, so each participant is responsible for their own transportation throughout their time in San Antonio.

Meals


This year we will be providing coffee and snacks during the conference. We will also host one lunch for everyone and an additional lunch for the women. No other meals will be provided at the conference. We are excited to lower the conference fee for this year by reducing the cost spent on meals. Attendees are responsible for their own meals, be it packing meals or purchasing out. Meals and groceries purchased during the conference can be reimbursed following the normal Reliant reimbursement policies. See Reimbursements for more details.

Reimbursements


Please see Reliant reimbursement policies for more details before you incur expenses for this event (flights, rental cards, housing, meals, etc). Children expenses are taxable since there is no specific children’s program provided this year. Associate eligibility rules still apply. Expenses for spouses and children of associate’s are not reimbursable.

Children & Families


This year we are not including a children’s program, although your spouses and families are welcome to come with you if you wish. Since the conference does not have a children’s program, if you do choose to bring your children, all of their expenses will be taxable.

SWAG!


We would love to be able to represent each others schools, so if you have stickers your ministry gives out, please bring some to the conference to share with everyone!

If your church has any swag they would like to donate to give away during the conference please let Jessica Schmidt (jessica.schmidt@reliant.org) know and she will collect any giveways during conference registration.
