Dear LDR Family,

I'll cut right to the chase and say that LDR has been postponed. It hurts, and it's disappointing but, I am hopeful I can explain it and gain your support and understanding.

Here's the deal: Our governing body, MNA, is trying to walk in wisdom by following appropriate public health guidelines. In order to do this, strict enforcement of new Covid protocols is required. This means that, even if we were to move forward with our cherished family reunion, LDR won't feel like LDR. We are used to a family-reunion-style gathering with exuberant worship full of familial relating. Following these protocols would throw cold water on most of how we do things, including the planned party on Saturday night. Added to that is that the cooler temps may mean we won't be able to open doors or do things outside as a Covid prevention.

If you have already paid and registered, we will reach out to you for a refund. If you booked a hotel, please contact them to cancel your booking.

Omicron wasn't even a word in our vocabulary when we planned LDR for the current date. Now, Omicron is surging across the nation and there are still many of us who are vulnerable. Who knows when this thing will be over (the Lord alone)? But as we adjust to the new normal, let's push pause on LDR with plans to reschedule soon and work toward something in the meantime to help keep us connected.

In the meantime, please take care of yourselves as we all trust God for the days ahead.

Peace to you all,

Kellie Brown
LDR Coordinator

Victorious. Steadfast. Immovable.

“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ! Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the Lord’s work, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”

- 1 Corinthians 15:57-58 (CSB)

LDR Weekend is our national gathering for African Americans in the PCA. This gathering is designed to be a "family reunion," an opportunity to connect with, and encourage one of our denomination's most underrepresented demographics. The good news is that it’s finally happening again-it’s a little different this year, but it’s happening. We’ve been away from each other for so long and had little outlet for a gathering together safely and many of us are desperate for LDR right now, I know I am.

We'll see you in Charlotte, NC, on February 18-20 for LDR 2022!

Having attended the conference for the first time, I know it will not be my last. I am already talking it up for next year and will be inviting others to join me!

This conference was an absolute blessing! My family will be back!!

Always refreshing and feeds my soul.

The pre-teen/teen track was incredible! Our children were moved by what they learned and I can see the message working in their hearts and minds.

Powerful in terms of content - but also gave practical & useful action items. I wanted to go to all of the seminars!

All the plenary speakers were exceptionally passionate, knowledgeable, motivated and anointed.
