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. Airbnb and vrbo.com are increasingly popular options for groups and families wanting to reserve a private rental home. Hope Church is located at 8500 Walnut Grove Rd., Cordova, TN 38018. Numerous hotels are in the vicinity.​

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: I submitted the Ruling Elder Commissioner Certification Form for our church. Do these REs still need to register for GA?
A: Yes, all Commissioners (TE and RE) need to register for the Assembly. This is separate from being certified by their church.

Q. I only want to attend one session during the Assembly. Do I still need to register?
A.
Yes, but if you are only attending one session on one day you can purchase a Day Pass at a reduced rate. This is available through the online registration form.

Q: What hotels have a discounted EPC General Assembly rate?
A: None. The cost and administrative load involved with hotel contracts for GA has become prohibitive. We now recommend online hotel booking sites like expedia, kayak, hotels.com, etc., to find a room that fits your budget. In addition, vacation rental homes such as Airbnb and vrbo are an increasingly popular option for people who are open to sharing accommodations.
