GLC Annual Celebration

The GLC Annual Celebration is designed to incorporate the business of the Annual Meeting and a celebration of the ministry of all that God has done in and through the churches of the Great Lakes Conference.

While only church-elected delegates receive delegate materials and the right to vote at the Annual Business meeting there are many opportunities for participation for your church members, including the workshops, banquet and awards, and the worship service.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Congregational Vitality Update

Congregational Vitality connections exist in 45 of our GLC Churches since 2010!  Over half of our conference churches engaged with a workshop, seminar or a journey on part of the Pathway experience; many churches come back for further opportunities because of the benefits received from the experience. This is great news!  

Whether or not your church officially engaged in a Vitality experience, your church could have a touchpoint to further maximize and maintain the level of church health and missional traction already present.  Here are two ways to plan to be part of the GLC efforts for churches that desire to be healthy, meaning pursuing Christ, and missional, meaning pursuing Christ’s priorities in the world:
