It has begun! The 2013 General Assembly of the Church of the Nazarene! - Well, to be exact, the General Assembly actually begins on Sunday, but the General Conventions have begun.
The General Assembly and Conventions run from June 19 - 27 in Indianapolis.
The Church of the Nazarene’s General Assembly and Conventions convenes every four years, bringing together more than 20,000 Nazarenes from around the world.
The main priority of the General Assembly and Conventions is to bring glory to God. This global event unifies, renews, educates, shapes, and inspires attendees not only as Nazarenes, but also as followers of Christ.
We gather together to focus on our church’s mission, “To Make Christlike Disciples in the Nations.”
This is also the place where decisions will be made concerning the Resolutions I published on this blog last August. - I expect to be blogging about them, as action is taken, beginning Monday. - Hopefully, I will have good news to report!
I am particularly excited about this General Assembly, because I will be presenting a workshop tomorrow (Thursday, June 20) morning. The title of the workshop is "Authentic Christian Worship Using John Wesley's Criteria." It is scheduled for 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM, and will be located in Room 243. - If you will be at General Assembly, tomorrow morning, I would love to see you in the workshop!
More information on the General Assembly can be found, here.
For those unable to attend the Assembly, there will be live streaming available. (Although, the workshops are not a part of the live streaming. However, I am told audio of the workshops will eventually be available on-line.)
Hope to see some of you at my workshop!
