FacetoFace is excited to host our annual United Conference again in the fall of 2021. More details to come soon.

WHAT IS UNITED?


The United Conference is a Youth Conference with an Adult Track that is designed to help people be united, supported, and challenged in their faith. Come be empowered to become a modern-day saint!
It is an incredible weekend with excellent sessions featuring praise and worship and keynote talks, plenty of time to connect with the amazing people, Reconciliation, Adoration, and much more!

FacetoFace Ministries is following the proper protocols set out by the health authorities in Saskatchewan.

The particular ones that pertain to the 2 sessions/worship services of the conference are:

  • "The total number of people participating in the services cannot exceed 30 per cent of seating capacity or 150 people, whichever is less." - The Conference will have maximum of 150 people together.
  • "To help ensure safety, individuals must be separated by two metres, unless they are part of the same extended household group." - Participants are to social distance (6 feet) from anyone not in their family or extended household.
  • "However, these [worship] guidelines do not apply to receptions." "Food and beverage service must be suspended at this time." - Participants need purchase their own meals off site as we cannot have that many people together besides for the worship services/sessions.
  • "Where physical distancing is not possible, participants will be required to mitigate the risk by wearing personal protective equipment and increased hand hygiene." - Participants will sanitize their hands regularly. If participants need to be closer than 6 feet for any reason then masks are expected to be worn.
  • "Although not recommended, when singing, participants must wear masks." - Participants need to wear a mask when singing.
  • "Attendees, employees and volunteers are required to stay home if sick or symptomatic." - If someone is feeling ill, please stay home.

Why sponsor the United Conference?
We FacetoFace we believe that youth deserve excellent ministry. Running a conference with excellence as a our standard is financially taxing. In order to keep costs at an affordable rate for participants we look for sponsors, such as yourself.

Benefits to sponsors:
Sponsorship is different than donating. Rather than a tax receipt, organizations receive a variety of benefits such as: screen advertising, program advertising, participant passes, spoken thank  you, and being prayed for.
