Church of God Ministries announces that Oklahoma City will be the location of the Church of God Convention and General Assembly in 2014. In accordance with a 2012 General Assembly vote, an offsite location will offer a satellite for those who cannot travel to the primary site. In 2014, Anderson, Indiana, will serve as the satellite location of the Church of God Convention.
Since 1907, the convention has been held in Anderson, Indiana. Of the more than 11,000 eligible members of the Church of God General Assembly (composed of all credentialed ministers of the Church of God and lay delegates), less than six percent have attended the annual session in recent years. This is the time for us to engage this body of leaders in new ways. Why Oklahoma City? The climate of church and culture has evolved to warrant a necessity for a more centrally-located venue for the convocation of the General Assembly. Western states claim over a third of the church’s membership.
Though early in its planning stages, the 2014 convention is taking shape quickly. As details emerge, they will be posted on the convention website. Please visit www.chogconvention.org to follow developments and to register. The Church of God Convention 2014 has adopted a Monday evening through Thursday format, and is scheduled for June 23–26. Its theme is “Be Bold!”
