Dear Friends in Ministry,
After much consultation and review of the CDC/ACA guidelines as well as our missional statement to bring Christ to all people without limits, we have made the difficult decision to delay onsite MidWinter Advance 2021 until 2022.
Our team of volunteers including staff and supporters prayed for discernment, peace and the future of our ministry. Ultimately, we felt led to not offer an event in the way you are used to in 2021 as a moral obligation to those students, leaders, college students, and staff members we serve. I know we all share in the feelings of loss and disappointment, and also know it’s the right decision to protect the safety and welfare of our students and staff.
Over the past month, MWA has been exploring other options to bring MidWinter Advance to your ministry in 2021. We are working on a Virtual MWA to launch in connection with Martin Luther King, Jr weekend in January. We will be sharing more details throughout the early fall. We realize this is not a time to remain silent and with full hearts we believe we can offer an experience of Togetherness even when we are apart.
MWA 2021 is not cancelled, but it will take on a very different look and approach this season.
If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me.
Keep your eyes and inboxes open for more details as they are finalized.
Megan Atkinson and the MidWinter Advance Team
