Attending GC Session

The Seventh-day Adventist Church is pleased to announce the General Conference (GC) Session is once again open to the public. All are welcome to see the global church in action during the business sessions, visits to the virtual exhibits, enjoy music from various countries, listen to inspirational devotional messages, and enjoy hearing reports from across the globe on how the church is spreading the Gospel and impacting people.

St. Louis is the perfect city to get reenergized in your faith as you interact with your brothers and sisters from around the world. Not only will you enjoy fellowshipping with others at GC Session, but we are confident that you will enjoy what the city of St. Louis has to offer. Considered the Gateway to the West, St. Louis is the perfect city to make memories, experience culture, learn about history, reconnect with nature, and excite your taste buds. St. Louis has many free and fun family friendly activities that includes the Zoo, the Art Museum, the Science Museum, the Botanical Garden, Union Station, Forest Park, and, of course, the famous Gateway Arch, one of the world’s tallest man-made monuments.

The health and safety of all attendees is our top priority, and the on-going novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic remains a concern. Therefore, we will have enhanced sanitation, ample space to accommodate social distancing, as well as other safety measures and guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We will continue to monitor, assess, and adapt as necessary to keep everyone safe. We thank you in advance for understanding if there is a sudden need to make changes close to the time of the event.
