Colonial is excited to host this annual event coming up on October 19-21,
and as usual we've invited a couple of the conference speakers to join us on
Sunday morning for a pre-conference kick-off!  
(see schedule below).

Changes Due to COVID-19
While we have at past conferences always offered special family-friendly programming on Monday and Tuesday evenings that is open to our church, this year due to the Coronavirus and needing to limit our worship center capacity, we've had to postpone those in-person gatherings. 


Ways To Participate

However, we still plan to livestream both the Monday and Tuesday evening general sessions, as well as the daytime conference general sessions.  No registration is required to watch the evening sessions.  But if you'd like to participate in the conference during the day, either virtually or in-person, you will need to register.  Colonial attendees receive a substantial discount making the price only $59 to enjoy all the sessions and workshops.  To receive the discount code, contact the church office.
