Hugenote Kollege hosted a virtual conference of the International Research Consortium on missional congregations from 30 June tot 2nd July 2020. The conference was hosted on our MyNotes learning platform and via Zoom, and proved to be an effective way of facilitating international meetings and conferences. Although different time zones necessitated duplication of the presentations, delegates appreciated the opportunity to engage with the presenters via Zoom.
The conference covered themes such as “Leadership for turnaround churches”, “Covid-19 forcing adaptive change in congregations” and “Research on congregations in South Africa in the crisis of Covid-19.” The conference paid special attention to the global and local impact of Covid-19 on missional congregations.
