Meeting the diverse needs of the World Church in food preparation is a high priority for the GC Session in San Antonio, Texas. Menu planning includes intentional efforts to address the suggestions and recommendations of our attendees. Recognizing the need to provide convenient, wholesome, appealing vegetarian meals at cost-effective prices has become a goal worth pursuing.

Delegates will receive additional meal ticket information from their sponsoring organization.

In order to preserve the quality and quantity of meals, it is vital to purchase meal tickets in advance. Tickets will be available for pick up at the meal tickets sales kiosk located in the East Registration of the HBG Convention Center. Only a minimal number of meal tickets will be available on-site, so pre-purchasing is recommended.

There will also be a limited number of on-site food outlets operating at specific hours during the GC Session. Every effort is being made to alert the greater downtown area of the specific needs of our attendees so quality meals are available. However, local menus and pricing will prevail, so plan accordingly. Please check often for additional information posted on this website as we draw closer to the event.

What is Session?

The General Conference Session is the forum for electing world church officers and voting changes to the church's Constitution. Delegates also hear reports from each of the 13 administrative regions of the church. Voting delegates for Session represent world regions both by church population and the self-sustainability of administrative regions. The Constitution states that at least 50 percent of delegates shall be laypersons, pastors, teachers, and nonadministrative employees, of both genders and representing a range of age groups and nationalities. Church members also have the opportunity to reconnect with friends from around the world.

GC Session 1988

91 delegates met for the 27th General Conference Session in 1888 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. [all photos courtesy GC Archives]

GC Session 1936

Church buildings could no longer hold GC Sessions by the early 1900s. Above, delegates meet at the Exposition Auditorium in San Francisco, California in 1936.

GC Session 2010

Sessions later made the move from arenas to stadiums. Here, the Georgia Dome in Atlanta fills up for worship on Saturday morning at the 2010 Session.

Transformation over time

While Sessions are now held in football stadiums, pictures from early Sessions show delegates lined along the entrance to a small church. Back then, the movement's leaders came to Session in the U.S. state of Michigan mostly from the Midwest and Northeastern United States by train or by horse and buggy. Today, about one-third of the movement's membership now resides in Africa, with another third residing in Central America and South America. Brazil now has more Adventists than any other country -- 1.3 million.

Session beginnings

Seventh-day Adventist leaders met in Battle Creek, Michigan in 1863 "for the purpose of organizing a General Conference," the minutes from that meeting say. The meeting began on the evening of May 20, during which delegates chose a chairman and a secretary. During the Session, delegates drafted a constitution and bylaws. They also established leadership of the Conference comprised of a President, Secretary and Treasurer. Today, the same officer structure remains at all levels of church administration.

Battle Creek was the site of 26 of the first 31 GC Sessions. The first Session held west of the Mississippi River was in November of 1887 in Oakland, California. Session has been held outside the U.S. three times: in Austria in 1975, the Netherlands in 1995 and in Canada in 2000. San Antonio will be the 60th Session.

Frequency

The time between Sessions has lengthened over the years. Session was held every year until 1891. Session was then held every other year until 1905. Session then took a four-year break followed by another hiatus during World War I before meeting again in 1918. Afterward, Session was held every four years until the Great Depression -- Session was held in 1930, but then not again until 1936 and then in 1941. Since 1970, Session has been held every five years, as is mandated by the Adventist Church Constitution.

Meeting venues

Recent General Conference Sessions have been held in baseball and football stadiums in the U.S., Canada and Europe. Few other venues in the world offer the necessary amenities for such an event: seating for 70,000-plus attendees, venue support staff who speak English (the official business language of the church), reliable and cost-effective transportation, and food safety for a large group.

60th General Conference Session

Ted N.C. WilsonWelcome to the world church family of Seventh-day Adventists, and especially to our delegates and others who will be attending the 2015 General Conference Session in San Antonio, Texas from July 2-11. We look forward to a highly spiritual meeting as we listen to reports of how God is carrying the three angels’ messages of Revelation 14 to every corner of this globe, and how the Advent movement is penetrating every region, every town, and every home with this life saving message.

And yet there is still more to do. As the world continues to reel from uncertainty, tragedy, and catastrophe, what a message of hope we have to proclaim, as illustrated in our session’s theme: “Arise! Shine! Jesus is Coming!” and in our timeless theme song, “We Have This Hope.” Truly, the only hope for this world is Christ’s soon coming, and the witness of His people to help others prepare for that great event. This special work must involve everyone—women, men, children, youth, adults—all are needed to reach individuals for Christ through the Holy Spirit’s power.

During a General Conference Session, not only do we have the joy of worshipping together as a worldwide family; we have the opportunity to clearly focus on the mission of the church, and how best to accomplish that mission. Elements of our overall mission theme of “Tell the World” will continue until the Lord comes as we reach up to God, reach out to others, and reach across to nurture, retain, and involve everyone in the work of the church.

Let’s continue moving forward together as we focus on God’s Holy Word, on the Holy Spirit’s wonderful work of personal and corporate revival and reformation, on health and community outreach, on integrated evangelism using personal outreach, integrated media approaches, and public evangelism, and on our mission to the cities where millions are longing for the hope that we have to share. Moving forward, let us reaffirm the marvelous foundational truths of the Bible that make us who we are as Seventh-day Adventists—including our understanding of the sanctuary service as God’s work for His people at this time, and the wonderful guiding blessing that God has given the church through the gift of the Spirit of Prophecy.

As we meet together in San Antonio, let us lift up God’s work as central in all that we do. Let Christ’s righteousness be the theme of our personal and public expression of who we are as Seventh-day Adventist Christians. Let’s pray together for God’s leading in a marvelous way during our 60th General Conference Session as we plead with the Lord for the outpouring of the latter rain of the Holy Spirit and the second coming of Jesus Christ.
