Welcome to the Stonecrest Issachar Conference website. Your visit here, we trust, is indicative of the fact that you are interested in attending this groundbreaking, virtual event, slated for May 9 - 12, 2021. I’m Dr. Richard L. Barclay, founder and host of the conference.

This cutting-edge event draws inspiration from 1 Chronicles 12:32: From Issachar, men who understood the times and knew what Israel should do… Today, there is an urgent and persistent need for people to know the times and what our nation and our world should do. The Issachar Conference, prayerfully, will assume a vanguard position to help churches and families thrive and survive amid current movements, trends, ideologies, misinformation and world views that are molding our lives. Once it has assisted in this area, the conference will lead participants to actions designed to address the myriad of challenges they face.

Toward this end, Issachar Conference has assembled a cadre of much-sought-after speakers who understand well the times and who know exactly what our attendees should do whether they are church leaders or community leaders, family members or church members, married or single, church elder or church minister, for example. Their expertise is well documented.


Peruse our website for details about the conference; contact us if you have questions.  Like the men of Issachar, you now understand the times— May 9 - 12, 2021 and you now know what to do—register for the Issachar Conference.  It promises to be transformational.

Read Dr. Richard L. Barclay Biography


Today, there is a critical need for Christians to understand the times—the times of the greatest pandemic in history—the times of churches with dwindling memberships—the times of increased racial unrest—the times of corrupt government—the times of a breakdown in families—and the times of acceptance of a distorted view of love and marriage.

We must seek ways to understand and address these critical issues the way the Word of God teaches us to utilizing strategies that are outside the box, timely and effective. This conference will utilize people who are well-versed in a number of areas—who know what to do and who are eager to share their expertise.

Stonecrest Issachar Conference, a virtual event, will address issues in both the church and the family. It promises to be transformational!
