How will the Global Gathering help my church?

The Global Gathering will provide a tangible experience of our global family and nurture a deeper sense of our shared identity. We envisage partnerships being formed, initiatives started, plants resourced, relationships strengthened, vision enlarged, counsel given, nourishment gained, care provided and rest enjoyed.

Is there a limit on how many people I can bring?

To ensure we serve our growing global family, we are limiting tickets to a maximum of 10 people per church.

Is there childcare available? Can I bring the whole family?

Childcare is limited to those under 12 months of age and will be available during meals and main sessions. Please do not bring children over the age of 12 months.

Is there financial assistance to those who cannot afford it?

Please contact your Network Director to see what financial support is available.

Can I come earlier/stay later for a vacation?

Definitely! Complete the applicable section on the registration form specifying which additional nights you would like. These will be at your own cost but they will be charged at the discounted rate negotiated by Acts 29 — $165 per room per night (plus taxes) for a shared room.

Do I have to stay at the Hilton Lake Buena Vista?

Yes, unless you live within 40 miles of the hotel. In that case, you can buy a local attendee ticket, which includes the same as a standard ticket but without hotel accommodation.
