Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ,
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I would like to call on all of you to register for, pray for and attend the 37th Conference with the theme of PASS THE TORCH in Southern California June 30 to July 3, 2022.
The annual conference is our joy, our strength and our strategy. Its joy comes from the reunion of our family of faith in North America and beyond. It is where we can meet and interact with so many brothers and sisters of the same faith from all over.
The strength of the Conference comes from the Lord's promise: “If two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in My Name, there am I among them.” (Matthew 18:19-20).
The Conference is also our strategy. This year we come together to seek the Lord and His guidance in light of the fragmentation of generations in the church. This is a very specific and important issue. We also believe that God has abundant wisdom and grace available to those who seek Him. We look forward to a great gathering of the new generation in this conference.
Passing on the baton in a relay is actually an essential discipling practice of all generations as expressed in our Conference key verse: "You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others." (2 Timothy 2:2)
Our venue this time is California's premier spacious and comfortable hotel thanks to the hard work of the Convention Support Committee. Costs in this area may be slightly higher than elsewhere but I believe that attending the 37th General Assembly will bring joy, strength and valuable strategy that cannot be found elsewhere.
