Frequently Asked Questions
Q: When and where is the International Conference?
The 2021 conference will be completely virtual and held from May 3-7, 2021. Every registrant will create an account and personalize their profile on our virtual platform, where they will access the conference content from.

The conference’s main sessions will be livestreamed from 2:30-4:30 PM CDT on Monday, May 3 and 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM on Tuesday, May 4 – Friday, May 7. While we encourage participants to join live as they are able, we understand that this is not possible to accommodate live viewing in every time zone. The sessions will be recorded and available on the platform immediately after the live stream is finished. Participants may access the conference’s content at any time after its scheduled premiere.

Q: When does registration begin and end?

Q: How much does it cost?
March 31 and until April 25 when registration closes, it will be $35.
Q: Am I able to watch the conference as a group under one registration?
Yes! We think it is a great idea to host a small group viewing party at a chapter office, local church, or in a home as long as it meets the local COVID-19 requirements and ensures safety for the CEF family. While this can be done under one registration, we encourage every individual to register if possible so they may access the full benefits of the conference (such as choosing from over 40+ workshops, interact with CEF family across the world, or checking out exhibitors and vendors online) in addition to watching the main sessions.
Q: Who are the featured speakers?
We are excited to hear from the following speakers:
- Richard Blackaby
- Reese Kauffman
- Nate Irwin
- Adam Bailie
- Beltane Harrigan
- Paul McIntyre
- Jana Alayra
Q: What language translations are available?
The conference will be made available in English and we will be utilizing translation technology to provide translation for 15 other major languages. We have surveyed CEF leadership internationally and will use the results to decide which translations are most needed. More information will come as it is available.
