What is the 9/11 and the New Middle East conference?
The 9/11 and the New Middle East conference, sponsored by Chosen People Ministries and the Alliance for the Peace of Jerusalem, is designed to help our faith family in New York City and around the globe honor the fallen and survivors on the twentieth anniversary of 9/11 and to see the New Middle East through the lens of Scripture. You can join us in person in New York City or online for 9/11 and the New Middle East on Friday and Saturday, September 10–11, 2021.
What is the cost?
There is no charge to host the conference locally. Although the in-person New York City event is $125 per person ($95 if you register before August 20), we are offering this satellite opportunity entirely free of charge to any church, high school, Bible study, small group, or university that would like to live stream the 9/11 and the New Middle East Conference. You simply commit to taking a love offering for Chosen People Ministries either Friday evening or Saturday morning to help cover our costs for this event.
What can I do to promote this?
We have prepared a wonderful promotional packet for you—complete with flyers, posters, bulletin inserts, the schedule, a press release, PowerPoint slides and Facebook posts, plus short promotional videos and trailers you can use in services or on social media. Everything is ready to go. We are here to save you time and be a blessing!
Who are the speakers?
We have a lineup of the “best of the best” speakers, including Anne Graham Lotz, Joel C. Rosenberg, Dr. Darrell Bock, Dr. Michael Rydelnik, Tom and JoAnn Doyle, Dr. Mitch Glaser, Marty Goetz and Misha, and frontline workers from 9/11. Read more about them here.
Will there be 9/11 family, survivors, or frontline workers present?
Yes! On Friday evening and Saturday morning, there will be time dedicated to hearing testimonies from those affected by 9/11 firsthand. We will all participate in remembrance and moments of silence.
What happens after I register?
You will immediately receive an email asking you to verify your registration. After we receive your confirmation, we will send you an email with the satellite site promotional materials for you to use as much as you want! In early September, we will send you the live stream links once they are available.
Is this event appropriate for kids?
Due to the sensitive nature of some of the content, we recommend parental discretion for children twelve or younger.
Is there a dress code?
Those attending the live conference in New York are being asked to dress in business casual as a sign of respect due to the commemorative nature of this conference. We recommend that satellite locations maintain the same dress code as for Sunday services at your location.
What is the schedule?
September 10, 2021 from 6:35 pm to 9:00 pm and September 11, 2021 from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. You can view the entire schedule here, and you will receive a printable schedule in your promotional packet. Please note that all session times are listed in local New York time (EDT).
What about meals and breaks?
Meals and refreshments are on your own during the designated break times. Food and drink etiquette (e.g., whether refreshments are permitted in the sanctuary) is at the discretion of the church hosting the event.
Will this be live streamed or on a time delay?
At this point, the conference will be streamed live, so you will have the unique opportunity to participate with the family of faith live in New York City and around the globe in this historic 9/11 twentieth anniversary conference. We are looking into the technical and financial details of making a time-delay option available for satellite locations to stream in their local time zones instead of Eastern Daylight Time, and we will let you know if that becomes a reality or not.
When will I get the live stream links?
We will email you the links and instructions for streaming in early September, as soon as we have them available.
What is the process for hosting the conference locally?
You sign up. You invite your church and community. We provide everything for you, free of charge. There are only two guidelines: 1) participate in all the live streaming sessions, and 2) collect a love offering for Chosen People Ministries to help cover the costs.
Can I email my pastor or leader about this historic satellite opportunity?
