EC20 is to be Online!!

Hello hello! My name is Kristine Reddington and I’m an associate staff for JCFN. I am also the director for this year’s Equipper Conference (EC). (EC is a conference held to equip those who will one day return to Japan)

I’m sure some of you have been wondering.. “What’s the plan for EC this year?” 

I am happy to announce that we have decided to have an online conference this year👏👏

Although we will miss seeing everyone in person, we are excited for this online opportunity. Here are some things that were said in the EC committee discussions:

“Because how crazy this year has been, EC will be a huge blessing for people”

“Doing it online doesn’t mean that we need to give up on our vision”
“God will move powerfully regardless of how EC happens”

In our discussions, we were reminded that God will use this new and unique EC for His glory.

With that, I want to share with you this year’s theme. Theme for EC20 is…

“Listen…~So you may live~”

When I was thinking about the returnees and the things God had been teaching me, what God gave me was this concept, “to listen.” “Voices” are huge influences in our lives. To listen to the world or to listen to God determines the way we live. So at this year’s EC, we want people to see the need to listen and respond to God in their daily lives. We also want them to see the joy that comes with that.

With COVID-19 stuff, we have been led to pray and “listen” as the EC committee more than usual. In that, God has challenged us and encouraged us. I am confident that God who is already speaking as we plan will speak powerfully at EC20. So let’s be expectant❤

This year’s EC is also the 30th anniversary of JCFN. I am so excited for God to do only what He can do. So please pray with us for this year’s EC~☺✨
