VALLEY FORGE, PA (ABNS 3/4/21)—Registration is now open for the American Baptist Churches Biennial Mission Summit, meeting online Thursday, June 24 to Saturday, June 26, 2021. Plan now to experience the vitality of our American Baptist family together with other American Baptists from all corners of the United States and the world during our first ever denomination-wide online Biennial Mission Summit! Visit www.americanbaptists2021.com to register.
The 2021 Biennial Mission Summit will feature scheduled programming on each of the three event days, June 24-26, 2021. Don’t miss keynote speakers that include Rev. Dr. Winterbourne LaPucelle Harrison Jones on Friday, June 25, and Rev. Dr. Brianna Parker on Saturday, June 26. Experience engaging workshops, a special comedy presentation, and a selection of Mission Summit Conversations. Interact directly with American Baptist exhibitors and friends in the Virtual Attendee Hub (presented through our partnership with Cvent). Everything is virtual – no need to travel!
We are excited to welcome you and invite you to explore the offerings planned for the event at the links below.
Each of the worship sessions, along with eight live workshop sessions on Friday and Saturday afternoons, will be recorded and available later that day for viewing. Additionally, a number of prerecorded sessions and resources provided by our exhibitors and partners will be available at all times in our On-Demand Library. All registrants will have access to the Library for 90 days after the event!
All are welcome! Persons who register during the month of March will receive an early registration discount. Pricing is as follows:
