Event description

Description

Under the theme "Firmly Standing, Boldly Sending", delegates of the Texas District will gather June 14-16, 2018 in Irving to conduct the business of the District, to glorify God, and celebrate the mission opportunities that abound within the Texas District and beyond!

Firmly standing on the Word of God and relying on the grace of God in Jesus, members of the Texas District are bold to proclaim God's love to the nations living in Texas and to send with confidence workers into the various communities and people groups in our State.

IMPORTANT REMINDERS

All organized (chartered) congregations that have joined the Synod hold voting membership. Every congregation is entitled to two votes at the district convention, one of which is to be cast by the pastor and the other by the lay delegate. (If a pastor serves two or more congregations, these shall be regarded as one parish and shall be entitled to only one lay vote.)

Voting delegates of congregations are encouraged to register and be credientialed prior the opening of the Convention. See Secretary Kruegers letter for more details. We are encouraging delegates to complete and return the 2018 Voting Delegate Credential Form signed by two of your congregational officers. by May 14, 2018. Thank you! Voting delegates can still present the 2018 Voting Delegate Credential Form to Secretray Krueger at the beginning of the convention, however having this in advance simplifies the onsite convention registration process.

All non-voting ordained and commissioned ministers who are members of the Synod within the Texas District shall serve as advisory delegates and are entitled to voice and vote on a floor committee (if selected) and to voice in the convention.

All duly elected voting delegates shall attend all sessions of the convention regularly until the close of the convention. All advisory members are expected to attend all session of the convention.

If you would like to be considered for service on a Floor Committee please complete your registration by January 19, 2018.
