2020 OKC Fall Conference - Cancelled
Dear Oklahoma City 2020 Fall Discipleship attendees,
After prayerful consideration and also conferring with our local OKC NavCity leadership, it seems in the best interest of our overall community to NOT do the September 18-19th 2020 Oklahoma City Discipleship Conference. This cancellation was a painful decision as this will be the first time in over 20 years (maybe ever) that we have not had a discipleship conference. There are just too many variables that we have no control over in the months to come such as how would we social distance in our workshops.
We worked hard to consider other options such as doing a virtual conference or even an outdoors conference, but neither of these were practical or cost efficient. As you know, part of the enjoyment of attending the conference each year is the fellowship with people we love and care for, but don't often see.
Although we have a broad section of attendees that represent over 4 generations, our conference is still heavily attended by middle age and up, a category that presents higher risks for Covid-19. Furthermore, the church we had been blessed to use for the past few years, was not comfortable putting on our conference this year as they had not yet even opened their church back up to their own members.
I am believing the Lord is providing us with a year of rest this year and allowing us to get re-energized to put on something fantastic in 2021. Please be in prayer for our nation, our leadership, and our community. Excited to see what God will do with our conference next year.
I love serving you and serving in this role as your conference director.
