CHURCH OF GOD CONVENTION 2019: GIVE LIFE!
By Ann Brandon
Why am I excited to travel to Orlando, Florida, in June 2019? As a child and a preacher’s kid, I remember many “what is the Church of God?” conversations with school friends. Travelling to a state youth event, or even better, the national convention of the Church of God, was a welcome joining of the family. I felt connected; part of something much larger than my local church; a sense of belonging and being known. Those are memories that have only grown and multiplied as the years of camp meetings and conventions have come and gone. So, Orlando in 2019 is another welcome and much-anticipated event for me!
Join us to connect! Church of God family members from all over the world will be gathering to worship, learn, and network. Because of the facility and location, young and old will find places to connect and enjoy the convention.
In fact, new this year will be a KidzLIVE! VBS opportunity each morning of the convention for kids in kindergarten through fourth grade. Curriculum is being developed, the team is forming, and we are excited to offer this specialized programing in partnership with Warner Press. Childcare will also be offered for the evening services.
Join us to worship and learn! The speaker and music worship leader lineup will be rolling out on the website and other communications in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for additions to the schedule. You’ve already heard that Natalie Grant will kick off the convention with a powerful concert, and you’ve seen names like Lori Salierno-Maldonado, Juan Santos, and Samir Saliba. Add to those gifted and invested preachers other strong communicators like Matt Anderson, Allyson Smith, Erin Taylor, Jake Zaske, Harvey Carey, and illusionist John Michael Hinton! It’s sure to be an event packed full of inspiration, challenge, and fun together.
Don’t miss it. Register now and book your room at the Marriott World Center (for a significantly reduced rate)! Come and get connected, experience the work of the Church of God around the world, and meet thousands of others who are part of this Church of God family! I can’t wait to see you there!
