The Annual Patria Family Reunion

Family and Fellowship

While travel may be difficult and Covid mitigation has posed several problems, the 2021 Patria Family Reunion will take place live in Birmingham, Alabama.  We recognize that many of you may not be able to attend this year and in particular that it will be difficult for our International family members, but we have finalized plans for moving forward none-the-less.  If you are unable to attend in person, we are planning to have a live stream platform available to you.  

We are still finalizing our plans, but the event will take place in the Leeds, Moody, Irondale area somewhere close to our previous locations.  Additional information will be available soon.  

Based upon survey results we will not be doing meals as a part of registration this year. Instead your registration fee will help us offset the costs of the facilities we will be using and other expenses.  We will still have meals together (including a BBQ at the French's home on Saturday evening), but they will be planned for various restaurants with plenty of time for fellowship between sessions.  

The look of this year's event will be different with more time allowed for everyone to fellowship and connect.  Due to the nature of planning this years event, we will not have an outside guest speaker, but do have some great sessions lined up.   You will also have the chance to hear about our new school of ministry launching this fall and  our new missions focus.

We are looking forward to our time together!  Register now and help make our planning process easier!
