What is a Virtual Global Symposium?

A Two Hour Interactive Learning Experience for Church Leaders

The 6:4 Fellowship’s Virtual Global Symposium is a gathering of leaders, to discuss a particular topic in biblical ministry, presented on the Zoom platform. The 6:4 Fellowship uses nationally known speakers to address these topics from their specific church, para-church, or ministry experiences. Each presentation, and any application, is then discussed by those in attendance in break-out rooms, broken out by geographical regions and roles in their present ministries.

These sessions have been very insightful for those in full-time ministry bringing different perspectives, ideas, and inspiration for them to apply in their local settings. The Virtual Global Symposium is also a great opportunity to fellowship with like-minded leaders around relevant ministry topics.
