For the last several months I’ve been a part of an amazing team dreaming, planning, and executing Every Nation’s World Conference, themed GO! After many meetings, conference calls, songs selections, and more song selections, it’s finally GO time! The GO Conference marks the ceremonial 20th anniversary celebration of Every Nation Ministries. An EN World Con only comes around every 3 years, but when it does there is nothing quite like it!
In my first year of getting connected to the EN family I attended a world conference in Los Angeles in 2001. I will never forget walking in the back doors after worship had already begun, hearing the voices, and seeing the faces of the nations. Not just flags “representing” the nations (growing up as an #80sCharismatic, I’ve seen PLENTY of flags) but people; thousands of beautiful people of every color, shape, tribe, and tongue. I was ruined. While singing the song “I Will Worship”, with tears streaming down my face, and among an assembly of the nations I thought, “this is amazing…this is home.”
Shortly after that conference I came on staff at an EN church and began serving on the worship teams for various EN conferences. I have been able to attend the last two world conferences hosted in Manila which were nothing short of UH-MAZING!!! I’ve had the privilege of meeting the most amazing people–let alone worship leaders spanning the globe.
Now, for the first time in 9 years, the conference is back in the states in Orlando, FL. Our global reunion is in my backyard and I couldn’t be more thrilled!
I am so excited to welcome and serve our international delegates and particularly the worship team for the conference. I am so excited to see friends from across the globe that I haven’t seen since the last world conference 3 years ago as well as those across the state that I’ve seen 3 months ago but still love dearly. I am thrilled to no end to hear the sound of worship that will fill that room as the nations gather together to sing with one voice!!! AAAAAAHHHHH!!!!
Can you tell I’m kinda pumped?!?
Who out there is coming? Where are you coming from? What are you expecting?
