Q: What will I miss by not attending in-person?
A: Great question. Of course you’ll miss the in-person company of our community and the meals. Beyond that, in-person attendees will exclusively be able to:
- Choose between all 10 live breakout sessions (rather than only the 4 filmed for the online attendees)
- Attend the optional evening activities (Bag-End Cafe or Sprinklings)
- Participate in the worship and prayer sessions
- Participate in optional afternoon Camp Allen offered activities (free or at an extra cost) like skeet shooting, horseback riding, and hiking.
- Participate in the labyrinth walk/seminar hosted by Christin Ditchfield Lazo
- Have access to the conference bookstore run by Rebekah Choat
- Fellowship with friends by the fire or outside surrounded by the piny woods around Camp Allen
- Have conversations with the conference speakers and have books signed by them.
Q: What is the time zone for the event?
A: Since we are in Texas, near Houston, the event will take place in Central time.
Q: What if i miss a session? Can I watch it right afterwards?
A: Good question. Because we’ll be streaming live as-it-happens, it will take our tech team some time to format, transfer, and re-post each session. Because this is our first time running a hybrid event (we’ve done 100% in-person or 100% streaming), we’re not sure how long this process may take us. So there will likely be a delay after each session concludes of anywhere from a few hours to a few days before the recording is reposted.
However, you will have access to the videos for three months after the conference ends, so you will have plenty of time to watch the sessions if you missed any as well as rewatch with friends or family. Note: you can’t share the link with others, but you can rewatch with your own personal login.
Q: Will I be on camera during the sessions?
A: Because of the nature of streaming the event at the same time we are hosting it live at Camp Allen, you’ll primarily be participating by watching the sessions as they happen rather than being on camera yourself. You’ll be able to interact by commenting in chat, asking questions in the Q&A, or commenting on message boards. So feel free to wear your pajamas, eat meals, and have a cup of your favorite beverage!
(NOTE: please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org with further questions. We will add common questions here as we get closer to the event.
