Registration is now open for the 2017 General Conference Convention! Help us spread the word that this is going to be a fantastic convention, and you don’t want to miss it. We are excited!
Join us July 3-8 in Springfield, Illinois, at the Crowne Plaza Springfield as we fellowship, catch up with old friends, make new ones, receive inspiration from dynamic worship services, and conduct the business of the Church.
“Worthy is the Lamb” is our theme. Imagine a convention of believers giving glory, honor, and praise to Jesus in all we do — whether in business sessions, worship gatherings, interaction with local businesses, or visiting and fellowship. Please start praying now that Jesus will shine in our lives and that we will return home energized to be about our Father’s business.
Convention 2017 offers a unique opportunity within our church history to catch the Vision of a Vibrant 21st Century Church and to examine ways to make that vision a reality in our General Conference, our local churches, and our individual lives. We will also revise the General Conference bylaws to create the infrastructure to support that vibrant church. Don’t miss this opportunity to be challenged and involved!
On this site you will find lots of good information to help you plan for our time in Springfield, the capital of Illinois and home of President Abraham Lincoln.
Please be aware that by staying at the convention hotel, you are helping to defray the costs of meeting rooms needed for our activities. Those costs are based on our reserved rooms and a food and beverage contract.
Remember, by registering early, you assist the committee in preparing convention activities, and you receive a discounted rate. We look forward to seeing you in Springfield!
In the meantime, your prayers for a successful convention and for convention staff would be greatly appreciated.
Worthy is the Lamb!
Ken and Mary Jean Knoll
Convention 2017 Program Co-Chairs
This special event is available to all who wish to attend and register in advance. Topics will include Vision; Transforming Vision into Reality Past, Present and Future; and Leadership Strategies.
Negotiations with hotels for our national conventions require that we contract for a given number of rooms each night. Fulfilling that contract significantly reduces the rental fees for meeting rooms in the hotel. By staying at the convention hotel, attendees help reduce the overall cost of convention.
The facility fee allows those not staying at the convention hotel to pay their share of the hotel rental fee.
There is no registration fee for children 3 and under. The online registration system will be available up to and throughout the convention, and personnel will be available at the registration desk during the convention to assist with changes or new registrations. Early registration discount ends on April 30, 2017.
It is important that you read the GC Convention Refund Policy before registering.
