GloPent World 2020 Conference Hub



'Welcome to this first virtual global Pentecostal studies conference. You are joining speakers from around the world, some of them in their early morning hours and others at the end of their day, all dedicated to present, discuss, and share their ideas on mapping global Pentecostal issues. We have speakers from 27 countries in live and pre-recorded sessions organized around four keynote speakers. I hope you will find stimulating conversations, engage in new challenges, and meet old and new friends.'
