Evening Opening Worship
130th Business Meeting
Service of Ordination,
Commissioning, & Consecration
“Gather” is the new umbrella name for the reformatted Annual Meeting Event. We will gather for business sessions to conduct important matters for our mission, but Gather 2015 is so much more. It is compelling worship, engaging speakers, equipping learning experiences, fellowship opportunities, celebrations around what God is doing, and gaining vision for what there is yet to do.
The Business sessions are about shaping the mission we are in together. Every congregation is entitled to representation as we give thanks for what God has done, welcome new churches, discern future direction, select leaders, consecrate missionaries, credential and ordain clergy, encourage one another to greater discipleship, make commitments to funding the mission, and hear about the challenges and opportunities in front of us.
Gather 2015 will take place June 25-27, 2015, at the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center. We will meet in the heart of Crown Center. It is a short stroll from Union Station and Liberty Memorial, it is also minutes from the Power and Light and downtown business district. The Crown Center restaurants provide inviting places to energize. Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center is right next door to a multitude of local attractions like SEA LIFE Kansas City Aquarium, and LEGOLAND® Discovery Center. Known as a city within a city, Crown Center offers 85 acres of great shopping, dining and entertainment. Consider beginning your summer vacation in Kansas City, MO at Gather 2015.
