UNCHARTED: ENGAGE CONFERENCE 2021
July 19-22, 2021
The John S. Knight Center | Akron, Ohio
Join Brethren youth and leaders from around North America as together we press into UNCHARTED places and discover Jesus and his call for our lives.
2021 takes Engage to beautiful downtown Akron, OH and the John S. Knight Center. An exciting 4 days awaits. We're glad you're with us.
We're looking forward to having a safe, enjoyable General Conference in-person with all of you! Part of the reason we have selected the John S. Knight Center is its capacity for social distancing. The John S. Knight center is adhering to all regulations set forth by the state of Ohio. While conditions on the ground change everyday, we will be following the protocols required by the John S. Knight Center. If masks are required by JSK at the time of conference, we will ask attendees to wear masks. If social distancing is required, we will gladly submit.
We are committed to being together this year, and we know that may bring a few inconveniences or challenges. However, we believe the benefit of worshipping and discerning together far outweighs any precautions we may have to take in the interest of loving our neighbors.
