Shadow Mountain Community Church
The upcoming 2017 Annual IAMA Conference is being hosted by San Diego Christian College and Shadow Mountain Church. Please choose which 2017 IAMA Conference ticket option is right for you from the drop down menu below:
We will meet after Tuesday’s activities at San Diego Christian College (SDCC) for a welcome aboard meal and campus tour.
El Cajon does not have many nice hotels, therefore we have arranged preferred rates at two local golf resorts with lodging, and a Days Inn hotel near “Hotel Circle” in Mission Valley – approximately 25 minutes away.
The preferred lodge is the Sycuan Golf Resort Lodge, which is closer and nicer than any other. It is about 4 miles from SMCC and very beautiful. They have given us a nice discount in a safe, rural setting.
Click on the links for each hotel for rate and reservation instructions. Most hotels have a booking deadline of May 5th (30 days prior to conference). After that date our pre-negotiated hotel rates will no longer apply.
There are other hotels in El Cajon, Santee, La Mesa and greater San Diego and you are welcome to search for them. But we feel the ones we have chosen will be safe, clean, and restful. Be sure to read the reviews if you use Trip Advisor website or other internet hotel search engines.
I have also included links to maps showing the route and distance from the hotels to SMCC and from the hotels to San Diego Christian College where we will meet on Tuesday for a welcome aboard presentation and meal:
HOTEL ACCOMODATIONS - PREFERRED OPTIONS
SPECIAL NOTE: The last day to reserve a room under the pre-negotiated discounted rates is May 6, 2017. After May 6, 2017, the lower pricing cannot be guaranteed. The 2017 IAMA Conference will be primarily in El Cajon: Shadow Mountain Community Church (SMCC) 2100 Greenfield El Cajon, 92019

A dedicated family man, Dr. Jeremiah believes that without the support and encouragement of his wife, Donna, Turning Point would have never been brought into existence. He and Donna have four grown children and twelve grandchildren. Dr. Jeremiah’s commitment is to teach the whole Word of God. His passion for people and his desire to reach the lost are evident in the way he communicates Bible truths and his ability to get right to the important issues. Dr. Jeremiah continues to be excited to see what God is going to do in broadcast ministry around the world through the Ministries of Turning Point.
