We thank you for the important role you will play in the 2022 Mission Leaders Conference – a hybrid conference. This page was created to provide you with all the information you will need to know as a presenter at Counting the Cost 2022. We will update content from time to time so please save this link and refer to it for future questions.
About Our Theme – Counting the Cost
For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it? Luke 14:28
The cross and the kingdom cannot be separated. Jesus calls us to share in this suffering as we take the gospel to all peoples. In 2022, Missio Nexus will be highlighting suffering, loss, bold witness, and sacrifice as we share the love of Christ with others.
Workshop Information Form
This form must be completed by every presenter and submitted by March 25th. You will be asked for your bio (125 words or less), a photo of yourself and the track in which you will be presenting. The Primary Presenter will be asked to complete the workshop description (125 words or less) including learning objectives and primary audience. This form has a “save and continue” feature. At the bottom of the form, you can select SAVE or SUBMIT. By selecting save you will be provided a link to return and continue editing the form before submission. This is what you will see:
Before submitting, you may want to save and email the link to your track leader for approval before submitting. This way, if edits are needed, they can be made before submitting. Once submitted, you cannot return to this form for editing. If you are presenting alone, you are the Primary Presenter. If you are presenting with others, each presenter needs to submit this form. In this case, 1 individual must be designated the Primary Presenter. Those who are not Primary Presenters will be able to skip portions.
Workshop Room Set-Up
Wherever possible, workshop rooms will be set with round tables and chairs to allow for interaction during workshops. In addition, each room will be equipped with a podium, microphone, screen, projector, webcam & sound system connected to a computer run by the tech volunteer. If you require anything additional, please use the Workshop Setup Form to submit these requests no later than Tuesday, August 9th. Discuss with your track leader if you will be using your computer or their computer for your presentation. Please plan to bring any adaptors needed for your computer.
