The 77th International General Assembly will be held in Orlando, Florida on July 30 – August 3, 2018. The Assembly will begin with the opening business session on Tuesday morning, July 31, and conclude with the Commissioning Service on Friday night, August 3. There will also be some pre-Assembly functions. Please check the SCHEDULE page.
This will be the fourth time the Church of God has chosen Orlando as the General Assembly site. Other years were 2010, 2012 and 2014. Countless entertainment, dining and shopping options combined with year-round sunshine make the Orange County Convention Center the perfect event destination.
Shuttle will not be provided.
Taking an I-RIDE Trolley is one of the most convenient and least expensive ways to explore the International Drive Resort Area. Trolley stops are conveniently located in front of the West Concourse on I-Drive.
Activities for the Assembly will utilize the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) West Concourse on International Drive. The West Concourse is located across the street from where the previous assemblies were held. There is a protected skywalk that connects several hotels and convention center.
Hotel accommodation in Orlando is various and plentiful. Assembly accommodations include four major hotels--Hilton, Rosen Centre, Rosen Plaza and Hyatt Regency Orlando. These major hotels are connected to the OCCC West Concourse via sky walks.
The easiest way to register is online at www.churchofgod.org/ga2018. This is the case for both housing and delegate registration. Printed registration and housing forms were included in the January 2018 edition of the EVANGEL.
The agenda for the General Council is usually finalized in the April meeting of the International Executive Council and released shortly thereafter. Faith News (faithnews.cc) will release an on-line version as soon as authorized.
There are several schedules that will be released at different times leading up to the Assembly, including special events. Faith News will release schedules as they are finalized by the departments sponsoring such events and they will also be populated to the website.
