Join us for the 2021 Georgia District Conventions & Assembly | May 19-20 | Dublin First Church of the Nazarene
We will follow the direction of the Board of General Superintendents (BGS) regarding delegates to the General Assembly and Conventions. Also, the District Advisory Committee (DAC) will conduct the business of the District Assembly and full reports and District Handbooks will be available to all churches as soon as possible.
Thanks to the Georgia District Advisory Board and the BGS for your prayers, advice, and encouragement. And, thanks to all Georgia Nazarene ministers and congregations for your persistent, love, prayers, and service during this strange season.
You are loved!
All 2021 District Convention & Assembly worship and sessions will be held at Dublin First Church of the Nazarene (312 Telfair Street, Dublin, GA 31040).
Due to social distancing guidelines and seating capacity, on-site attendance is limited to delegates only. Delegates will be seated in the Sanctuary and Gym, and must be registered and present to vote. Guests will not be turned away, but will be directed to overflow seating (if available). All attendees are expected to follow local health guidelines, which includes (at this time) wearing a mask.
All services and sessions will be live-streamed from the Sanctuary to the Gym for delegates, and also live-streamed online for guests. Livestream details and links will be announced later.
The DAC has established a delegate policy for 2021 to assist with health and safety, and as a cost-savings measure for local churches. For 2021, each local church should elect one group of delegates to attend and vote at all three meetings (NMI, SDMI, District Assembly). By having the same group of local church delegates throughout the entire event, we reduce the threat of virus exposure and help reduce local church expense. Watch for more information from Pastor Don Hicks (District Secretary) regarding delegate registration details.
All voting this year will be conducted electronically, on-site. Each delegate must be registered, and each delegate must provide a personal email address. (To ensure safe and anonymous voting, couples may not share the same email address). Electronic voting will utilize personal smartphones, tablets, or computers which reduces the risk is virus transmission. Orientation, training, and assistance will be available on-site as needed.
Manual Paragraph 204. “All district entities shall be authorized to meet electronically. Voting methods shall be approved by the DAB. All communications and voting required may be carried out electronically.”
Ordination Service Attendance
Due to limited seating capacity with social distancing, seating in the Sanctuary will be limited to ordinands, ordinands’ family members, ordinands’ pastors, and district and general church leaders. The Ordination Service will be live-streamed to the Gym for other pastors and guests, and will also be available online.
