Once a year our leaders from all over the world gather together for a time of prayer, worship, strategy, and relationship building. Because relationships are the foundation of all we do, this is a crucial point in our calendar.
This year, our gathering will be in the vicinity of Ulsan, Korea (Gyeongju) from October 22-24, 2020. Lodging and food will be covered beginning October 21st.
If you are interested in being a part of the Network, please contact us about coming to this important gathering. First time members and guests are usually covered by a scholarship.
“In over 40 years of ministry I have never experienced anything like it. The vulnerability and love of Jesus at the gathering are unbelievable.” – 2019 Participant
For those interested in coming early or staying late to tour other parts of Korea, here is a message from our hosts:
“We are excited and honored to be hosting you in our beautiful country for the 2020 Global Gathering! The Gathering will take place in Gyeongju, the original capital city of Korea during the Silla dynasty. It is the best city to see everything Korean has to offer!
Though it’s still a while away, some enquiries were made regarding visiting other cities in South Korea before / after the conference and how transportation would work from places such as Seoul.
Fear not! Korean public transportation is phenomenal and there are many simple, convenient and affordable ways to get around. Should you wish to spend some time in Seoul, you can reach Gyeongju using the bus (very comfortable), KTX (high-speed train), or airplane. Use the following link to see options.

If you would like to travel directly to the hosting city, the best airport to fly in to is Busan, Gimhae. It’s about two hours from the Gathering and can also be reached using various forms of transportation. Use the following link to see the options:

From Gyeongju station, it’s just a short ride to the hotel!
There are fantastic sight-seeing opportunities in and around Gyeongju, we highly recommend spending a few days there. We will also arrange some excursions.
Should you wish to arrive a few days earlier or stay a few days later, there are many hotels / motels around Gyeongju. Motels in Korea are very clean and affordable. Alternatively, you can reserve a room at the hotel which the Gathering will be held at.
We will send more detailed information on getting where you need to go closer to the Gathering.
Feel free to contact us if you need anything else!
(Please note that Korea is super safe, convenient and has high-speed WiFi everywhere, you’ll be fine)”
