Every three years, the Missouri District hosts the Professional Church Workers’ Conference. Normally the conference invites pastors, educators, and other church workers to a central location in Missouri where participants gather together for fellowship and professional development. But in 2020, it was not possible to have the conference under these circumstances.

However, with the help of technology, the Missouri District was able to adapt and host the conference virtually. The two day conference running from October 21-22, 2020 had a higher number of registrants than previous years. And those registered are able to access presentations for a limited time after the conference.

“I think it’s great that we were still able to provide meaningful resources to Professional Church Workers in the Missouri District, even though we’re not able to be together in person this fall. It’s exciting to see over 600 registrants– many of whom may not be able to attend normally due to cost or travel– get an opportunity to participate.”
