2021 GENERAL ASSEMBLY

Join us for the 41st EPC General Assembly, June 22-25, 2021. The Assembly is going to be a hybrid event, with both virtual participation and on-site attendance at Second Presbyterian Church in Memphis, Tennessee. This modification is in response to local requirements for in-person gatherings in Memphis.

Online registration opens on April 15, 2021. Check back for updates, as more information is added frequently.

In keeping with local Memphis guidelines, facemasks are required to be worn on the campus of Second Presbyterian Church. In addition, social distancing of at least six (6) feet is requested at all times. Families and/or groups from a single church (“church pods”) may sit together in the Sanctuary. Out of respect for our host church, if you are unable or unwilling to honor these guidelines please participate virtually. For more information about Second Presbyterian Church’s COVID-19 protocols, see www.2pc.org/covid-19-response.

LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE

A key strategy for the future of the EPC is creating a leadership development culture with the goal of long-term, sustainable, transformational growth. The sixth annual Leadership Institute is the premier building block to implementing that strategy. Because of the hybrid nature of the 41st General Assembly, this year’s Leadership Institute will feature three plenary speakers whose presentations will be available via live stream.

Our speaker on Tuesday is Ligon Duncan, Chancellor and CEO of Reformed Theological Seminary. Plenary speakers on Wednesday are George Robertson, Senior Pastor of Second Presbyterian Church in Memphis, and Rufus Smith, Senior Pastor of Hope Church in Memphis.

In addition, four ministry-specific leadership development gatherings will be held on Tuesday, though these will not be available to virtual participants.

COMMISSIONER CERTIFICATION AND MEMORIAL FORMS

Instructions Letter

Overview of the 41st General Assembly from Stated Clerk Jeff Jeremiah, including instructions for the Ruling Elder Commissioner Certification and Memorials forms.

RE Commissioner Certification Form

For Clerks of Session to certify Ruling Elders elected to represent a church at the 41st General Assembly. Fillable PDF format—save to your computer before completing.

Memorials Form

For notifying the Memorials and Appreciation Committee of EPC Ruling Elders and Teaching Elders who have passed away since the previous Assembly.

ASSEMBLY HOTELS

There are no “official” General Assembly hotels. Commissioners are encouraged to use a hotel aggregate site, such as Expedia, Hotels.com, Kayak, Priceline, TripAdvisor, or others to make hotel reservations. Second Presbyterian Church is within one mile of the University of Memphis so plenty of hotels are in the immediate vicinity.

For more information, contact Marti Brenner at marti.brenner@epc.org or 407-930-4239.

LOCAL TRANSPORTATION

Rental cars are encouraged for those flying into Memphis, since there is no commercial shuttle service to Second Presbyterian Church, which has plenty of parking.

Shuttle service between hotels and the church will not be provided. Carpooling is a good option (or using Uber or Lyft) for those who do not have personal transportation and do not want to rent a vehicle.
