LOUISVILLE, Ky.--For only the second time in its 93-year history, the New 
Wilmington Missionary Conference will not be held on the Westminster 
College campus in New Wilmington, Pa.  The conference is slated for July 
26-Aug. 3. 
     Due to dormitory renovations at Westminster College that will not be 
completed by then, this year's missionary conference will be held at 
Allegheny College in Meadville, Pa.  The conference is expected to return 
to New Wilmington next year. 
     Originally begun as a high school conference for young Presbyterians 
with an interest in the church's missionary enterprise, the New Wilmington 
Missionary Conference has grown into a multi-generational gathering that is 
among the largest in the country dedicated to mission.  This year 
participants are expected from 30 states and 10 countries. 
     Keynote speaker is the Rev. Renny Domske, pastor of Jamestown (Pa.) 
Presbyterian Church.
