“The Mennonite World Conference Assembly is a space to learn more about our brothers and sisters from different parts of the world. Everyone, regardless of budget or vacation time, will have the opportunity to gather online to worship, fellowship and study the Bible together while learning about how Jesus invites us to overcome barriers,” says Jardely Martínez, Youth Program Coordinator.
“This year we can learn more about the Mennonite churches from Indonesia, their culture and their worldview on community, faith and discipleship.”
This year, when you register through the virtual hub, you receive an all-access pass to the virtual Assembly. Together with your local congregation, you can have both a shared and personal experience as a part of a great cloud of witnesses.
Here you can access live streams of the daily plenary sessions, participate in hybrid and online workshops and discussions, as well as follow Assembly on-site through short videos highlighting what is happening in each moment throughout each day. You will also be able to participate in mixed online and on-site small groups, where interpreters will facilitate conversations between languages so you can discuss with people throughout the world.
Registered participants will have access not only to all live events, but also a database of recorded sessions that can be found in the virtual Assembly Hub. Use the information below to plan your schedule to watch and participate in all of the plenary sessions and workshops available.
