Trailblazing through the Wilderness: ABCCONN’s 196th Annual Gathering Highlights
Thank you for joining us for ABCCONN’s 196th Annual Gathering. It was truly a blessed experience and although virtual, a testament to our ability to pivot when circumstances demand it.
We began the week with two nights of Healthy Church lectures by remarkable speakers, Rev. Dr. Sarah Drummond and Rev. Dr. Almeda Wright. Their presentations challenged us to lean into our faith to handle uncomfortable situations in order to lead our organizations through interesting times.
We were also excited to hear 3 stories as a part of our Historical Turning Points feature each day. These pre-recordings are embedded in the Annual Gathering recording and were made possible thanks to the Historical Committee.
The Annual Gathering included recognition of ABCCONN leaders, a word from Immediate Past President Bill Mathis and Interim General Secretary Jeff Woods, highlighted great stories from our 2019 mission scholars, and an update on Camp Wightman among other activities. Read Pastor William Mathis’ President’s Farewell Address (Heal the Land) here.
Missed one of the lectures or any part of the Annual Gathering? Not to worry. We recorded every event last week for your convenience.

Please note that these recordings will live on the drive and be accessible until December 31, 2020 at which point they will be downloaded and archived accordingly.

The event would not have been possible without your support and prayers. Special thanks to all who played a part of bringing this to fruition.
