Empowered21 announced its Jersualem2020 Global Congress will now take place on the Oral Roberts University (ORU) campus due to the coronavirus pandemic. The event will be available online via livestream.
The event was supposed to take place in Jerusalem Pentecost weekend, May 31-June 3. But since Israel instituted an indefinite ban of all international conferences and gatherings of more than 100 people in enclosed areas, Empowered21 changed its plans.
The organization released the following statement:
In response to the government of Israel’s indefinite ban of all international conferences within Israel due to the coronavirus pandemic, Empowered21 announced that it will forego the in-person Jerusalem2020 Global Congress formerly scheduled to take place in Jerusalem during the week of Pentecost 2020. The Empowered21 Global Congress will shift to an online event, May 31-June 2, which will stream live from the campus of Oral Roberts University (ORU).
“We find comfort in knowing that God is not surprised by this turn of events,” said Dr. Billy Wilson, president of ORU and global co-chair for Empowered21. “We hold fast to our mission to see every individual on earth have an authentic encounter with Jesus through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit by Pentecost 2033. We believe that this adjustment to an online event will actually help us accelerate the mission that God has given us.”
ORU will host and stream online the Empowered 21 Global Congress event from May 31-June 2, beginning with a live Pentecost Sunday celebration with special guests and worship teams. For future details on these events, visit Empowered21.com.
