I wanted to inform you that at Journey we made the very difficult decision to not host in-person the 2021 No Regrets Conference. Much went into this decision, and simply put there are too many variables in play this year to make it a wise choice to host. This is a big commitment financially, and it requires sponsorship from the community. With the impact of COVID on our businesses, it is poor timing to ask for their support or help. Now is the time for the church to help them. In addition, it takes a large volunteer team to make this happen. With quarantine procedures for exposure, we are likely to run into some challenges here. Also, to effectively and safely have a conference for the community for social distancing we would likely need to turn people away. We inquired about asking a larger church to host and for us to help, but recently the leadership of that church does not want to host for similar reasons. Elmbrook Church in Milwaukee, the host site for No Regrets, also decided to not host in-person and to do virtual only. Here is what was referenced on the No Regrets site:
“Sometimes incredible opportunities are born from extraordinary circumstances. The pandemic of 2020 has changed so many ways in which we live and lead our lives and the No Regrets Men’s Conference is no exception. We are pivoting to a new format for the 2021 experience that will be live and virtual on February 6th. While we won’t be gathering as 3000+ men at the Elmbrook campuses, we will be gathering in churches around the world and homes and community spaces all across the country, united in heart and spirit. We believe more men than ever will have access to the No Regrets Conference and be able to worship and learn in this global community.”
Even though No Regrets will be virtual only this year, we plan to be back in person in 2022! There are still ways you can view the conference, and my hope and prayer is that these opportunities will lead to more men being a part of this conference than ever before. You can watch with a small group, or you can view the conference in the comfort of your home. Below is how you can register for both of those options.
The 2021 No Regrets speakers are amazing, and I encourage you to attend the conference virtually in one of the forms listed. To check out the speakers and the 2021 theme, click on No Regrets 2021 Conference.
May God bless you, and please make plans to join us in-person for No Regrets 2022!
