FAQs

Registration and Fees

  1. What is the cost for partial attendance?

    There is a daily rate of $25 per day. Evening sessions are no longer free. Registration is required for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. 

  2. Why do children have to pay a registration fee?

    This conference is not only for adults, but for children, too! During the conference, children will be cared for by hired staff. These staff members are CPR certified and professionally trained to ensure our children’s safety. Children will engage in an in-depth Bible study, create crafts, enjoy snacks, and join in recreational activities.

Transportation

  1. Will transportation be provided from Houston Hobby Airport (HOU) to the Hotel?

    Yes. The hotel/conference site is located less than 5 miles from Houston Hobby Airport (HOU). Complimentary shuttle service will be provided to those arriving/departing HOU and staying at the Courtyard Houston Hobby Airport (713-910-1700). Please provide flight information during registration if you will use the free airport transportation service to help schedule your shuttle service. However, transportation from the hotel to conference will not be provided. You will need to arrange for personal transportation to/from conference and for meals.  

  2. Will transportation be provided from IAH to the Hotel?

    Regretfully, no. However, if you are traveling via George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH), we recommend for you to purchase your airport transportation through SuperShuttle. Please visit their website for purchasing and more info: http://www.supershuttle.com/

  3. Is it recommended to rent a personal vehicle?

    Yes, we highly encourage you to rent a personal vehicle for the conference. Transportation to/from conference and for meals will not be provided. Parking is an additional $10/day at the hotel. Perhaps you can share rental costs with another attendee to save money.

Accommodations

  1. I would like to share a hotel room and split the cost. What should I do?

    Email your request to daihoi@vbcweb.org by September 8, 2019. Provide your contact information. We will compile a list and share it with the group. Afterwards, it will be your responsibility to make arrangements.

  2. I am a pastor. Can I specify with whom I will be sharing a room?

    Complimentary rooms for pastors are on a first-come-first-serve basis. Assignments will be made in this manner: four individuals (i.e., single or traveling alone) or two couples (i.e., traveling with a spouse/child) grouped in a room. If you have specific groupings already in mind, please mention it when requesting a room. Otherwise, you may switch on your own after hotel check-in.

  3. Can I stay at different hotel than Houston Hobby Airport (HOU) and still attend the conference?

    Yes. We highly encourage you to stay at the Houston Hobby Airport (HOU). By booking a room here, you will also keep conference costs low for the hosting church. So please help us by staying at the Courtyard Houston Hobby Airport Hotel.
