Empower Con: Conversations + Connections

Thursday, Aug. 13, 9-11 p.m. (ET) / Friday, Aug. 14, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. (KT)

It is our pleasure to invite you to the first "Empower Con: Conversations + Connections." In light of COVID-19, we have decided to move the Empower Conference online and name it Empower Con. While the Empower Conference focused on inspiration and information, Empower Con is focused on equipping and training, giving an in-depth look at issues related to DPRK engagement.

Empower Con 2020 is themed “Embodying Shalom” and it is with an understanding that we need to embody shalom as we engage DPRK. Shalom is an inner sense of peace, harmony, wholeness, completeness, and tranquility which allows us to give back out of the overflow.

9 p.m. (ET) / 10 a.m. (KT): Introducing Embodying shalom
9:30 p.m. (ET) / 10:30 a.m. (KT): Embodying shalom in the family, between generations, and on the Korean peninsula
10 p.m. (ET) / 11 a.m. (KT): Panel discussion with consultants
10:30 p.m. (ET) / 11:30 a.m. (KT): Launching the Great Harvest 2027 and the Fellows Program

Empower Con will begin about 5 minutes early with music and personal prayer in preparation.

Registration is now closed. People who have registered will receive an email with a link to the livestream a few days before the event.

Empower 2020 Nashville Update

Dear friends,

Due to the COVID-19 virus and after much prayer and deliberation, we’ve decided to postpone the Empower Conference in Nashville, TN, to the summer of 2021. Everyone who has registered will be fully refunded.

In lieu of an in-person Empower 2020 in Nashville, Reah leadership has decided to take two initiatives even as we are proactively mobilizing for the Great Harvest 2027. Reah will launch a monthly online forum to address issues related to unification and engagement for the Korean peninsula. We sense God’s urgency that the people of North Korea come to know the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. To that end, we want to go deep into issues related to unification and North Korea engagement with faith that God is proactively working. With Reah’s extensive networks in Asia, Europe, North America, North and South Korea, Oceania, and around the world, you will hear perspectives and approaches that you will not hear anywhere else. The first online forum ("Empower Con: Conversations + Connections") is scheduled on the evening of Thursday, August 13th (ET).

Secondly, the in-person Empower Conference in Nashville is planned for the summer of 2021. We sense the need for a movement of young professionals to be prepared culturally, personally, relationally, spiritually, and embodying the unity paradigm. We want to decentralize the training so that more churches and organizations can prepare workers for North Korea engagement. Empower 2021 Nashville will truly equip and empower people and leaders to train the young leadership in their respective churches and organizations. With over a year in preparation, the gathering will be more impactful.

The Coronavirus crisis is an opportunity and these two initiatives as well as the Great Harvest 2027, taking shape behind the scenes, are affording us. This is not a time to sit idly by, but a time to hear from the Lord and to join him in preparing the next generation. Please pray and dream with us on how to better mobilize and prepare the body of Christ to envision a brighter future for the people of North Korea.
Please take care of yourself and your loved ones during this season.

Jamie Kim
Reah Director
