2016 GCI-USA Regional Conferences

Church Administration and Development is pleased to announce that in 2016, GCI will hold seven regional conferences in the United States. Here are the dates and locations:

  • February 19-21 in Ontario, California (Los Angeles area)
  • March 11-13 in Portland, Oregon
  • April 22-24 in Northbrook, Illinois (Chicago area)
  • May 20-22 in Morristown, New Jersey (New York City area)
  • June 24-26 in Charlotte, North Carolina
  • July 15-17 in Dallas, Texas
  • August 5-7 in Orlando, Florida

Pastors, as you and your leadership teams make plans and establish budgets for 2016, please factor in these conferences. Lead pastors and one member of each pastoral team are expected to attend as part of their continuing education. We also urge church treasurers and other finance committee members to attend—we will provide special content for them, including workshops on church finances (with updates on GCI and IRS financial regulations), opportunities to network with folks from the GCI treasurer’s office, and a reception honoring church treasurers. There also will be workshops for those involved in children’s ministry (more details to come).

Further information about conference content and registration will be made available later this year. The cost for registration and lodging will be comparable to the 2014 regional conferences.

  1. Glad for conference plans for ’16. At last we are close by to attend Ontario, but the question is, after 20 years of expected attendance as a pastor, I am now retired. Is the conference open to retired pastors/licensed elders? Maybe this is not the place to ask?

  2. Glad you asked Jim. The regional conferences are open to all GCI members, family and friends. All are welcome, though all who attend need to register. Information about registration, lodging, etc. will be coming later this year. Stay tuned!

  3. An GCI international conference is being planned for 2017 ( thus no U.S. regional conferences that year). No details yet as to location and date of the international conference–watch for updates here in GCI Weekly Update.

  4. You will be excited to know that the April 22-24 Conference in Northbrook, Illinois is in The Ramada where it has been held before. The hotel has been completely refurbished and is sparkling and the management has been very co-operative and accommodating. Charles has made the decision to move back here and I am excited about the move. Look forward to seeing you. Richard
