Summer Camp Meeting Schedule Released

The official schedule of the annual summertime Church of God tradition of camp meeting has been released by the International Executive Committee.

A total of 52 state and regional meetings will take place, including gatherings in Canadian and Hispanic regions. The meetings begin as early as the first week of May (Canada-Quebec, Alaska), two in July (New York upstate, Northwestern Hispanic), with the bulk of the meetings in the month of June. North Georgia, the largest region in the Church of God by membership, will be the final of the season when they conduct their camp meeting during the last week of August.

Length of the meetings vary from three to six days and several include multiple sites. Traditional format is for a morning Bible speaker and a single night speaker, however, many camp meetings of the last several years have invited a different speaker each night.

Camp meeting is a tradition which has been in place for nearly the entire 132-year history of the Church of God. For decades families have planned vacations around attending the meeting in their state or region. Camp meeting this year holds even more significance as a prelude to the 77th International General Assembly which will be held July 30 – August 3 in Orlando, Florida at the Orange County Convention Center.

During camp meeting week, state and regional offices often conduct business by holding state council sessions, staging missions and youth events, and recognizing state leaders. This is also a venue to recognize newly-certified ministers with the latest rank earned.
