In light of a request from Florida’s governor to limit mass gatherings, Ligonier Ministries will cancel next week’s National Conference in its current format.
God’s people need clear, timely instruction from God’s Word, so there will still be a limited livestream conference experience next week. Be sure to follow updates here on Ligonier.org, as well as our social media channels on Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube.
It saddens me to make this announcement, as this will be the first time in 33 years we will not be able to meet face to face with thousands of our cherished friends and supporters and sit under trustworthy Bible teaching together. We wait upon the Lord to see how He uses these turbulent times for His glory and His people’s good. May this be a moment in which we as the church “shine as lights in the world” (Phil. 2:15).
We are sorry for the inconvenience this has caused you. Ligonier will provide a full refund of your registration upon your request. In light of the costs already incurred for this planned event, however, many registrants have asked for their registration fee to be converted to a donation to advance Ligonier’s global outreach. Details about receiving refunds or donating registration fees have been emailed to all conference registrants.
Thank you for praying for this ministry. But even more importantly, join us in prayer on behalf of those affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) around the world and for government officials, first responders, and the entire medical community. May the Lord have mercy. Luther’s paraphrase of Psalm 46 is apt: “A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark never failing.”
As you know, we like to refer to our National Conference as Ligonier’s annual “family reunion.” Lord willing, we look forward to our next reunion with you, in person, in 2021.
