  • Where will the General Assembly be held?
    Join us in downtown Des Moines, Iowa, at the Iowa Events Center, 730 3rd St., Des Moines, IA, 50309
  • Where are the early registration discounts?
    Early registration discounts are available for the adult/regular registration fee. Other rates are already deeply discounted from the regular rate and will not be increased after April 1, 2019!
  • Is there a group registration discount?
    When you register 10 or more attendees of the same registration type, your 11th registrant is free. The registration system is automatically programmed to calculate your discount, so you will not have to enter a coupon or promotional code.
  • What do I receive with my registration?
    Registration will allow you access to the large array of educational workshops and the exhibit hall throughout the duration of the event. But your registration fee also makes the General Assembly possible! The General Assembly is a self-funded event, meaning that it relies partly on your registration fees in order to bring thousands of Disciples together for a week of learning, fellowship, mission and worship!

    When you access your registration profile you can add meal tickets, General Assembly materials, education sessions, or add an additional registrant to your existing profile.

    ALL are invited to worship! You do not need to register. The community is always welcome to join us in worshiping God – bring your friends and family as well!
  • Are business voters required to register?
    Yes, voting representatives are required to register to be in the business sessions.
  • Do you need the names of voters in advance of the start of the General Assembly?
    No. A voter certification form will be available at the Credentials kiosk. Designated voters should complete and sign their form and submit it to the volunteer. Once Voters are certified, they will then receive a RIBBON to apply to their name badge. Voter RIBBONS entitle voters to sit in a voters section for all business sessions of this Assembly. All confirmed ordained/commissioned ministers can pick up their clergy ribbon at check-in in the Registration & Welcome Center. The General Assembly will not mail any badges or voter ribbons (CLERGY or LAY) prior to the start of the assembly. You do not need to submit names to our office prior to the Assembly.
