EXPERIENCE CONNECTION, CELEBRATE WINS, AND BE INSPIRED

Network Conference is going to look a little different this year...and that's ok!

We are currently planning a hybrid event that will allow our ministers to connect, celebrate and be inspired either in person or virtually.

We will meet in beautiful Coeur d'Alene, ID, and hear from three amazing speakers as well as our Network Leader, Don Ross. Although the schedule is simplified to safeguard the health and well-being of all, we are certain you will enjoy your time and connection whether joining in-person or online.


Registration for Network Conference 2021 is REQUIRED. There will be no on-site registration. No entrance to conference will be allowed unless registered.


Note About Childcare
Childcare is unavailable at Network Conference 2021.


To ensure attendees can follow social distancing guidelines and to stay within capacity limits for gatherings in Coeur d’Alene, we may utilize additional venues for NC 2021. Each venue will have a live worship team and host. Any added venues will watch a broadcast of the main session speaker. Prior to conference, we will assign attendees to a venue if multiple venues are needed.


SCHEDULE

Ordination will look different this year to ensure social distancing and to give Ordination candidates an opportunity to invite a selected number of guests to share the experience with them. Ordination will be by invitation only and will be closed to general conference attendees. The Ordination session will be live streamed.
