We are quickly approaching the Biennial GC Convention, to be held July 10-15 in Covington, Kentucky.

Have you been convinced yet that you need to be there? From fellowship with friends, old and new, to the sweet Spirit of the Lord in our long-awaited gathering, or the encouraging and equipping workshops and evening services — even the necessary business of our church organization, not to mention the engaging children’s/youth/young adult programs: There’s something for everyone!

Bring the whole family for a wonderful vacation. The area holds many exciting things to see and do together, including the Ark Encounter, Newport Aquarium, and more. Expand your search and visit the great Mammoth Cave just three hours away. The Great Lakes and Nashville are within striking distance. What a beautiful part of the country to explore!

Our afternoon workshops will afford you a glimpse into the current GC Initiatives: Personal Evangelism, Small Group Ministries, and Welcoming Church. Take in the opportunity to learn more about our GC Ministries: Bible Advocate, Missions, and Artios. Need to know more about church finances? Dealing with anxiety? How to develop a preschool program? One or more workshop topics will certainly propel you on your journey!

Pay attention to the group excursions for the Ark Encounter (Monday) and the Creation Museum (Friday). Options include riding a chartered bus for the group rate. You can also drive yourself (different discount). These differences are spelled out on the website. The deadline to register for group excursions (via bus) is June 16.

Good eateries are not far from the Convention Center. Please consider staying on site and purchasing a few meal tickets. These help offset the cost of our meeting rooms. Meal tickets must be purchased in advance — by June 30.

Register today, if you haven’t yet done so! All who register by April 30 pay the early bird registration fee. Anyone registering after this date will pay the regular fee. (This includes any registrations that may have been started but not completed via payment.) Even after you complete your registration, you can return to the site and make changes, such as buying more meal tickets, selecting an excursion, or signing up for a volunteer spot.

Speaking of volunteers, please consider signing up to help for an event, for a day, or for a program. The success of our convention relies on all those who donate their time to make it happen. Many opportunities are listed on the registration site. We need your smiling face and caring hands to fill the need.

All registration information can be found at We are looking forward to your presence. “Come and see” what God has in store for us!
