Welcome to the Indiana-Kentucky Conference Virtual Annual Gathering 2021! Our theme this year is "From Sackloth to Joy" as we name the hardship of this past year, but also the joy of moving towards a new beginning. We will be blessed by storytelling, worship, an engaging keynote experience with the Rev. Dr. Gregory Ellison II, and look towards our future as a Conference that will not only host the next in person General Synod in 2023, but is beginning to imagine a new vision for where God is leading us. We are glad you will join us for this gathering by arriving here at our registration page. Per our new Constitution and Bylaws passing in 2019, you will notice that we will not have a business meeting this year and so your registration will be streamlined not as a delegate or guest, but to everyone identifying as a guest to the gathering. It is out of an abundance of caution that we will have this gathering virtually as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to present some current risk and we seek to continue loving our neighbor by mitigating the spread of the virus further. With great anticipation, however, we look forward to a gathering in 2022 with hope that we can actually be together in person. All that said, we welcome you to the Indiana-Kentucky Conference 2021 Annual Gathering as we step from sackloth and into the joy of God. May you experience the God of joy in our time together. 

Events are scheduled for Thursday, Friday and Saturday, as outlined below.

All sessions will be conducted by Zoom. Zoom is an online meeting platform that has become part of our lives in this pandemic. Links to each session will be provided as we get closer to the event.
