Pursue your call to love God and love your neighbor at General Assembly
June 17-21 in Birmingham
Experiencing Christ’s love is only the beginning. Pursue your call to love God and love your neighbor as you join your Fellowship family to worship, learn and grow — together. Through innovative training experiences, nightly worship, partner events and a vibrant exhibit hall with live podcasts and entertainment, you’ll meet Cooperative Baptists from the United States and beyond.
The Gathering Place – Return to the Gathering Place again and again throughout General Assembly to see what’s new on the Podcast Stage and to see who’s leading the conversation inside the CBF Booth. And we’ll have dozens of exhibitors wanting to chat with you and your family!
