General Council

 

Unite with others as you collectively seek God to determine the next steps of The General Council of the Assemblies of God through an exchange of ideas, vision, values, and direction through business sessions that include discussion and voting.

Assemblies of God General Council is your opportunity to refocus, without the clamoring of daily duties to pull you away from letting the Spirit lead. A weeklong series of interactive events, impactful content, and meaningful conversations, the General Council sessions will unite the God-sized dreams of every generation into one place to hear leading voices in the Church. Be shaped by the Holy Spirit as you help shape our future by engaging with some of today’s brightest minds in ministry and be a voice in the largest Pentecostal Movement in the world, the Assemblies of God fellowship.

Influence Conference, General Council, National Youth Convention and Fine Arts are uniquely designed events to equip the Church.
