Congregations » 2010 General Assembly


Each year, our fellowship experiences a "family reunion" in the form of the General Assembly. Usually held in a church, the assembly offers inspiring worship, informative ministry workshops, and helpful resources from various ministry partners and rich fellowship with Christians from around the state.
