Location & Travel

Location: Zephyr Point Presbyterian Conference Center is located at 660 Highway 50 Zephyr Cove, NV 89448. We will stay in the Tahoe & Tallac Centers which offer spacious hotel-style rooms and stunning views of Lake Tahoe.

Travel: If you drive in, please try to carpool as onsite parking is limited (look for a link to our Ride Share App in your registration confirmation email to either offer or request a ride). If you fly in, consider the Reno, NV airport which is only an hour away. Budget airlines like Southwest can be affordable, especially if you book early. You can also book a roundtrip seat on the South Tahoe Transporter from Reno Airport to Lakeside Inn, just 5 minutes from Zephyr Point. From there you can call Uber or Lyft. If you have any questions, please contact us and we’ll assist you. 

Rev. Greg & Jeni Lubbers

Rev. Greg & Jeni Lubbers

Speaker & Topic

Speaker: Rev. Greg Lubbers pastors Covenant United Reformed Church in Byron Center, MI and teaches Bible at Zion Christian High School. He is a frequent speaker for youth, young adult, and marriage conferences. He is a graduate of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary in Grand Rapids, MI. He and his wife Jeni have five children.

Topic: “Salt of the Earth: A Christian Worldview” based on Matthew 5:13-16. Forty years ago Francis A. Schaeffer asked, “How should we then live”? Every generation has to seek the answer to that most basic question. Relying upon the revelation of the Bible and the illumination of the Spirit, we will seek to discover and formulate the basic truths of a distinctly Christian worldview.

After each session, we will gather in smaller groups to discuss session highlights and pray together. On Sunday, Rev. Lubbers will lead morning and afternoon worship services overseen by Trinity URC. Throughout the weekend, we will have many opportunities to enjoy Christian fellowship as we take in the scenery, play games, tour the area, and much more.
