General Conference 2016 Photos

For some reason, I always think of an old Pentecostal song, “when we all get to heaven what a day of rejoicing that will be!” , when I attend the General Conference of the Metropolitan Community Churches (and I have attended them all in the last 48 years as of October 6th this year). They always show the best of our members. Incredible preachers, incredible singers, incredible speakers, incredible workshops, and usually great business meetings. Our conference held in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada this year for me was like that.

Phillip and I so much enjoyed meeting old friends as well as new people from all over the world that we had never met before at conference. We usually have between 1000 to 1200 delegates at our conferences. This conference was no exception.

I would like to thank Jimmy Nemeth, a member of our church in New York City, for sharing with me some of his photographs as well as giving me permission to use them. I have to pick some of them that I thought you might enjoy and I present them here.
