Can I watch the keynote recordings from home?
Yes! All 5 keynote talks and the 4 workshops that take place in the main sanctuary will be recorded and made available after the conference (likely in November) for a fee. We are still working on the details of this but know that it is something to look forward to that you will be able to enjoy from your home. We are thrilled to be able to continue spreading the joy in this way!
We are unable to livestream the conference or offer a Zoom option.
However, there are lots of other OSL Online opportunities in which you can participate. Take a look at the drop down menus at the top of this webpage titled “Find Healing”, “Request Prayer”, and “Events” to see how you can get plugged in!
