12:30 pmEnd of conference

All times are EST and approximate. This schedule is subject to change. As we get closer to the conference, we will have a more detailed schedule for group leaders.

Afternoon Options

– meet with partner organizations

We will have 25+ curated exhibitors who are eager to help you. From sending agencies, to seminaries, to resourcing organizations — each organization affirms the teaching of CROSS CON and we’d strongly encourage you to get to know them.

– Gather your group for discussion

If you are coming with a group, we will have a large ballroom with round tables that is always open for your use to meet and discuss what you’ve heard throughout the conference. We will also have discussion questions. Here is a sample from our last conference.

– Spend Time Meditating on What You’ve Heard

With so much content available to be absorbed, you may find it useful to simply rest or spend some time praying through what you’ve heard.

– Attend the Breakout Tracks

Three breakout tracks are available to attend that do not require pre-registration and allow for you to come and go as you please. A detailed schedule will be provided in the conference app.

#1 – Missions Track

Short talks on the following topics:

– Why go overseas when there are lost people all around me?

– Do the nations really need our gospel?

– How can I grow a heart for the nations?

– Five things you can do if you want to be a missionary

– Three things you should know before evangelizing Muslims

– Five things every woman should know before going to the field

#2 – Discipleship Track

– How to meet with God each day

– Why trials are your friends

– How do I humble myself?

– You NEED a church more than you may think

– 5 ways to prepare for a God-honoring marriage (from a marriage counselor’s perspective)

– Is it LGBTQ+ or Jesus?
