Why have you decided to cancel the in-person Mission Leaders Conference?

We received some 400+ responses to a survey conducted in the past two weeks. Many of you expressed concerns for health and safety, quarantines, travel restrictions, and not least of all unanticipated financial restrictions. In addition, the venue, the Rosen Centre, has graciously released us from our contract with no penalty, something that is almost unheard of. After much consideration and prayer, we decided  that the wisest course of action for us  at this time is to cancel the face-to-face Mission Leaders Conference in 2020.

Is this a virtual conference?

While our plenary speakers are the same, and our theme is still focused on the goal of the Great Commission, the format and time commitment is different. Rather than creating 70+ Zoom events, we are planning a 3-hour live, interactive broadcast for Thursday, September 24 at 1:00 PM EDT. This virtual event will be accompanied by a 40-day devotional series, written by leaders in the Missio Nexus community.

How do I get a refund for my 2020 Mission Leaders Conference registration?

You are entitled to a full refund for the 2020 Mission Leaders Conference. Your refund options include:

  • A partial refund with a portion which you designate donated to Missio Nexus
  • Credit your refund to Innovate 2021 in Dallas, Texas, September 22–24

Missio Nexus will be losing both revenue and expenses already incurred by this cancellation. If you are able, prayerfully consider donating part or all of your refund to help defray these costs.
