How to attend the 2016 National Conference from home

In just a few days, close to 1,000 people will be arriving in Nashville for the 2016 ERLC National Conference. This year's topic is “Onward: How to engage the culture without losing the gospel.” Since not all of you reading this are able to attend, we want to let you know how you can still join us from the comfort of your living room.

We are pleased to offer you a unique simulcast experience. Many people will gather with their churches, small groups or Bible studies to watch the conference while others will stay home and watch on their own laptop or television. All the information you need to join the livestream is listed below.

The simulcast will be hosted by Dan Darling, Trillia Newbell and Steven Harris. It will feature special interviews with keynote speakers and more.

There is no pre-registration required for the livestream. Click on this link and enter your name and e-mail address before proceeding to the stream. More information can be found here, or you can read below for common questions about the simulcast.

What do I need to host a simulcast?

  • An internet connection
  • A desktop or laptop computer
  • A mobile phone or tablet with internet connection

What kind of internet connection do I need?

  • DSL — service is faster than dial up and runs through your phone line
  • Broadband or cable modem — this is a dedicated line from your cable service

Is there a browser you recommend?

We recommend a “neutral” browser or one that doesn’t depend on the operating system of your computer. These tend to use less on-board resources and result in a higher quality video. We recommend using Firefox or Chrome for PC and Mac. We do not recommend using Internet Explorer. Please be sure you update your browsers before the event to get the most recent versions.

We hope many of you can join us, and we encourage you to share a picture of you or your friends enjoying the simulcast. Be sure to tag us and use the hashtag #ERLC2016 so that we can share your photo with our audience.
