2016 Metaphysical Bible Gathering Agenda

Saturday, October 29 2016, 9am-8pm

Set-up: We will set-up as many tables as are available so that most or all the participants will be seated at a table. This will enable them to take notes, use their laptops and mobile devices and to have a place to eat during the talks.

Schedule: After opening remarks by Tom and Mark, a new speaker is introduced each hour. Presentations should be about 45 minutes, leaving the last quarter hour for social interactions, restroom breaks and taking lunch and dinner, which will be available throughout the day.
