The 19th biennial Convocation will be held at Raynor Park Christian Church, Sunnyvale, CA. Over the past decades, Convocation gathers Pacific-Asian Disciples from all over the United States and Canada. The theme for this Convocation is, “Be Reconciled in Christ” with its biblical reference to 2 Corinthians 5:18-20.

The keynoter is Rev. Dr. Soong-Chan Rah, the Milton B. Engebretson Professor of Church Growth and Evangelism at North Part Theological Seminary. Worship preachers include Rev. Dr. Sharon E. Watkins, General Minister and President for the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ); Rev. Dr. Bernard (Chris) Dorsey, President of the Higher Education and Leadership Ministries; and Rev. April Lewton, Vice President of Development and Marketing for the National Benevolent Association and former NAPAD moderator.

At Convocation, in addition to worship sessions, there will be booths by ministry partners and educational institutions, educational workshops, and panel discussions. Pre-Convocation events for continued education and anti-racist training are being planned. We hope you can join us at this year’s Convocation for a time of worship, learning, leadership development and community building activities.
