  • This year the PROCLAIM Conference will be offered in a digital format. PROCLAIM is a multilingual conference is offered in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese.

    This year’s theme comes from Mark 10:49 when the disciples tell the blind beggar Bartimaeus to take courage because Christ is calling him. In the unprecedented times of our world the call to take courage resounds with all of us.

    Our Keynotes and workshops will address how to have courageous leadership today and how to be a courageous witness in the world. There is something for everyone at PROCLAIM, for although we have a great diversity in ministry, we share a unity in mission.

    You can register for PROCLAIM ahead of time and then on Friday morning of the conference (November 13, 2020) you will gain access to the following:

    • Live Keynote presentations via ZOOM in three languages (Eng, ESP, VIET)
    • 45+ Pre-recorded workshops available to view starting November 13, 2020
    • Live ZOOM discussions on various topics
    • Live Publisher showcases with our sponsors.
