To Our MC 2020 Conference Attendees:

We have decided to cancel this year’s conference in light of the Covid-19 outbreak. We have come to this decision by way of honoring the Governor of Pennsylvania in his strong encouragement to cancel or postpone statewide events of 250+ participants. We have not taken this decision lightly and we are extremely sorry for the inconveniences this will cause all of you. We will issue a refund to all of those who have registered. Let us remember to pray for this world and the fear that is growing over this global crisis.


We have received several requests as to whether conference registrants may donate their registration cost to help defray the expenses already incurred for the conference. The answer is yes – you can. Please email us at (make sure to double check your email address is correct) by Sunday evening, March 15 to request ‘NOT’ to receive a refund. All other registrants will receive their refund on Monday, March 16.

A Vision for Gospel Centered Conversations

Matt Jantzi / James Charles

We communicate every day. But how should the good news of Jesus be included in our interactions? Join us to discuss Christ-exalting conversations and how we can talk about the things that matter most.


Planting and Cultivating Vision in Our Children

Paul & Laura Lloyd

This workshop will focus on how we as parents can help our children to acquire an awareness of world missions, and hopefully, a lifelong burden for God’s missionary purposes.

Succeeding as a Visionary 

Emanuel Esh

Have you ever been frustrated because your God-inspired ideas and plans get “shot down” by faithless people and trusted friends? Does the purpose and outcome you see so clearly seem to get muddled in politics, deaf ears, and foggy minds? Perhaps YOU and YOUR vision have been misunderstood or misrepresented? I’ll share the story of my harrowing, humbling journey carrying a Spirit-inspired vision through inception and adversity, into reality!

A Window of Opportunity: The Refugee Crisis

Nate Shrock

This session is for young leaders looking for more. We are in an era of opportunity like no other. Refugees are coming to Europe and America; unreached people who have lived in spiritual darkness for years are coming to us! As American young people we have the time, energy, and resources to be a part of what God is doing globally. Men and women who are willing to risk their comfort for the sake of the Gospel are needed, whether at home or abroad!

Vision for American Missions 

Jeff Barker/Reuben Stoltzfus

Never before in our lifetime have we seen such a division in this country called the United States of America. In the midst of the confusion and political uncertainty, the time is ripe for the true gospel of Jesus Christ to go forth. How can I join with God in what He’s doing in the hearts of the American people?

Commissioned. Sent. Done? NOT!

Mike Allgyer

Do those we send to the “uttermost parts of the world” need encouragement? Do they need a listening ear? Who is responsible to provide care for those sent? As senders, when does the task of sending start and when does it stop? How can I become an excellent sender? In this session we will explore and learn the What, the Why and the Who of Member Care and the blessing you can be with a vision to impact eternity.

Serving with Joy in the Background

Joel Yoder

Have you ever felt your role on the team is insignificant? Have you struggled to find fulfillment in serving others? Have you wondered how you can better support your leader? In this workshop we will look at aspects of teamwork and how to find fulfillment in serving others in a support role. We will also look at Barnabas, the “Son of Encouragement” and his role in ministry with Paul, then take those lessons and apply them to our setting when we are also serving others.

Helping Visions Succeed 

Rodney Nolt

Vision without execution is hallucination. Join this practical session to learn what it takes to bring visions to reality, whether it’s a personal vision, or you’re the implementer behind a visionary.
