📣 MOMcon Update, June 29, 2020: Due to Governor Polis’ recent guidelines prohibiting large gatherings in the state of Colorado, MOPS International regrets to inform you that MOMcon 2020 at The Gaylord Resort of the Rockies has been canceled. While we are deeply saddened we won’t see you in person in September, we know the health and safety of attendees, staff, speakers and exhibitors comes first. We are diligently working on the countless details that come with cancellation, and more information is coming soon. Please note: we have an incredible, yet, small team navigating this, so your patience in this process is much appreciated. In the meantime, here’s what you need to know:
- MOPS will be offering ticket refunds – the refund/transfer request process will become available on July 15.
- Additionally, on July 15 we will share details about how we’ll reimagine what the fall looks like, and how we can come together virtually in the midst of these unique circumstances.
We thank you in advance for your patience throughout this process. Even though our plans have been rearranged, we know that God is holding all of it. Thanks for being such an integral part of our community.❤️
MOMcon is a space to remind moms and MOPS leaders from all around the world that they are the most influential people on the planet. It’s a weekend for moms to come together, champion motherhood in all its glory, and renew their minds to what matters most. Part mom camp, part leadership conference, part straight-up CHURCH – you will leave knowing that your motherhood is a catalyst to the plans and purposes God has for your life.
What you call limitation, God calls liberation. What you call failure, God calls fuel.
What you call a constraint, God calls a catalyst. #MOMCON2020
September 17-19, 2020
Expect to learn something new. We bring in world-class speakers, teachers, artists and all-around world changers to offer something incredible for everyone at MOMcon. Our gatherings and workshops are designed around what you care about most, like parenting, marriage, faith, leadership and calling, to name a few. With more than 20 different hot-ticket topics to choose from, the comment we hear most is that it’s nearly impossible to pick which workshops to attend and which to skip. All that to say, bring a pen and prepare to take some serious notes, because you’re going to gain so much knowledge.
(More workshop speakers and topics will be announced soon! Check back here to see what’s in store.)
Expect to receive specific, MOPS leadership training. MOMcon started out as an event exclusively for MOPS leaders, but we don’t really do well with the word “exclusive,” so we’ve expanded it to any and all moms. All this means is that there is something incredible for you either way. Leaders, we still offer all the leadership training, MOPS tools, and spiritual formation you could possibly need to strengthen your MOPS leadership. We’ll offer specific leadership tracks that are made just for you, plus position-specific meetups and workshops.
In fact, many churches see the value in training their MOPS leadership team and are able to foot the bill to send them to MOMcon. For talking points on how to ask your church about helping to get your leadership team to MOMcon, email email@example.com.
Expect a pretty packed schedule. Again, we want to fit as much goodness as we can in our short time together. From main gatherings to workshops to moms’ night in, you’ll be eagerly walking from one place to the next trying to absorb as much as you can, so bring comfy shoes. Don’t worry, we build in some time for you to relax, enjoy your girlfriends in your hotel room and FaceTime your kids you may be missing dearly. (Or maybe not – you do you.)
Expect to dance, sing, laugh and cry a lot. Nearly 25 years of putting on this event, and we can say with certainty: You will experience some really big feelings at MOMcon. Mostly good, sometimes hard (which is good, too). We get real, fast. We know you made a lot arrangements to be here, so we don’t want to waste any time on formalities. Just know that it’s a safe place to sing off-key, dance like no one’s watching, get a good cry in, and laugh at all the ridiculousness that takes place all weekend.
Speaking of dancing, expect to attend the biggest costume party you’ve ever seen. Saturday night, we close our time together with a huge dance party we call MOMcon Prom. You don’t have to dress up, but every year we have a costume theme for this massive party, and our moms go ALL. OUT. Previous themes have been ‘80s, ‘90s, Woodstock and Disney. We’re excited to announce this year’s MOMcon Prom theme will be Roaring Twenties!
Expect to leave different than you came. As you head back to your family, ready to hug those kids much longer than they’d prefer … You’re going to feel different. Probably lighter, more grateful, and more ready to embrace the life you have. See, MOMcon isn’t the end of something, it’s just the beginning. Once you get home? This is the part where you put it all into motion, where your family notices, where you act upon the truth that your motherhood is a catalyst. The best part.
