The annual Statewide Conference on Evangelism + Church Health (ECON) looks a little different this year, with an all virtual format that you can view from the comfort of your own home. We'll still have great worship and dynamic speakers that we hope will encourage you to lead and keep pressing forward to advance the Gospel. Despite the uncertain times, we serve an incredible God!
Virtual ECON will be on the same schedule but happening at two different times for convenience. The first will be from 1-3 PM and the second time will be 6:30 - 8:30 PM.
The livestream will be accessible at ABSC.Online.Church. It will be accessible on the 25th, 1 hour prior to the event beginning.
