NWMC Speakers

Speakers for the New Wilmington Mission Conference are invited from a wide variety of experiences and backgrounds.  The Morning Meeting and Evening Meeting Speakers are chosen to speak to the intergenerational gathering, and each age group has speakers that address their position in life more specifically. 

Our list of 2020 speakers will be updated as confirmations occur.  Please check back often, as occasionally the speaker line up will change.

Morning Meeting Speaker

The Morning Meeting Speaker addresses the Conference each day during the worship service that takes place from 11:00am-12:00 noon.  The whole conference (4th grade and up) gathers together during this hour for intergenerational worship.
