The Final Countdown to General Assembly and the NDI Convention!

We have officially reached the final countdown to General Assembly! In a few weeks, Nazarenes from around the globe will be gathering to celebrate what God has done through the faithful servants of the Church of the Nazarene and to declare together again that Jesus is Lord! As you are preparing to journey to Indianapolis, there are some final details that you need to keep in mind!


Everyone must register! The GA visitor registration link is located on the GA 2023 website, This link will give you access to all services, plenaries, exhibits, and inspirational onsite workshops! Also, there is a great opportunity for all GA registered kids!  GA Kids is an intentional ministry conference for kids and families that will include age-specific services for early childhood and elementary, an intergenerational service for family on Sunday, and many opportunities for the entire family to connect with others in the global Nazarene family. How do you get your kids registered? Follow the same GA Visitor link but be sure to “add child” and complete the requested questions.
