2021 General Assembly

Online Event | April 30, 12:00-4:00 ET

What is the EMCC General Assembly?

General Assembly is a biennial gathering of pastors, delegates, and guests from EMCC churches from coast to coast. Due to current restrictions, the 2021 Assembly will be held online. It is a time for vision casting, celebrating what God is doing in our midst, learning, connecting, and carrying on the business essential to our life together.

Introducing the 2021 Theme: Rising With the Dawn

The idea behind this year's theme is to consider this time of uncertainty and rapid change as an opportunity to rise up with Jesus into new ways of living as His people together. 

Psalm 112:4 states, “Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for those who are gracious and compassionate and righteous.” And in Psalm 119:147, “I rise before dawn and cry for help; I have put my hope in your word.” 

We anticipate this upcoming Assembly to be a time of planning, praying, and worshipping together with hopeful anticipation of Jesus' plans for our EMCC family as we depend on the Spirit of Jesus in our journey!

What is Different This Year:

Due to the unusual circumstances of the past year, Assembly 2021 will look quite different than anything we've done in the past. The format is entirely electronic and people will "attend" in two different ways.

Individual members and Corporate member delegates will attend on the Zoom webinar platform. This allows us to ensure that we have a quorum for our Annual General Meeting and be able to monitor the voting process.

* Registration for General Assembly is now closed. We encourage everyone to join us on April 30 by watching the Live-stream on YouTube.

Everyone else will have the opportunity to "attend" by viewing Assembly on Youtube. There is no need to register for the live stream on Youtube.
