This year, instead of hosting two in-person Regional Gatherings, one in the West and one in the East as we usually do, we look forward to joining together as a denominational family for one grand event online.
Our theme is "Getting Ready: Anticipating What God Has Next." The key verse for this year's Regional Gathering is Isaiah 43:16-18.
This will be an online event. However, we encourage you to gather in "watch parties" with other pastors in your area or with your church staff and volunteer teams as current Public Health Guidelines allow.
If you choose to host a watch party and would like to open it up to others in your area to join, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add your group to our watch parties page for others to find.
If you are interested in finding a group to join in your area, please check our watch parties page closer to Regional Gathering to see which watch parties have formed.
