The northern Irish Christian duo is preparing to host their first-ever virtual and global worship conference titled “Sing! Global Conference.” It is planned to be streamed on over six continents starting from August 30 until September 2.
The four-day annual event will be held on the digital platform this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. After the success of Keith and Kristyn’s online Hymn Sing, they got the idea to push through the “Sing! Global Conference” digitally.
“It took us a long time to wrap our minds around what an online event would involve,” Keith said in an interview with The Christian Post. “But as we reflected on the urgency of the current moment. We quickly discovered that a digital conference could be a way to connect believers around the world. While it was disappointing to realize we could not gather for an in-person event, we recognize that God often surprises us. And He has now opened the door for a new concept that can bring a wonderfully diverse group of people together online.”

The digital event will be feature over 100 speakers and artists including John Lennox, Andrew Peterson, and David Platt. Dozens of seminars will also be conducted during the event to encourage Christians to deepen their faith amid the pandemic.
“We have always had a burning desire to see churches and believers around the globe go deeper in their faith through the hymns. However, we never could have anticipated that it would take a global pandemic to push us to develop a totally new digital event. That could potentially reach more people around the world than our in-person conference ever has.”
