Global Young People’s Convocation 2014 in the Philippines!
Yes, the Global Young People’s Convocation and Legislative Assembly (GYPCLA) will be held in the Philippines! On July 16-20, 2014 at the CCT Tagaytay Retreat and Training Center in Tagaytay, Cavite Province.
The GYPCLA is held every quadrennial (four years). Each Central and Jurisdictional conference is allocated five youth, five young adults, and two adult workers as voting delegates. Central Conferences are asked to use the age ranges for youth (up to 24) and young adults (up to 35) that are used for membership on the DMYP. Delegates should be chosen through the Youth/Young Adult organizations of the Central or Jurisdictional Conferences and should be chosen by the age that they will be when the even occurs.
Twelve non-voting delegates spaces are available to each Central and Jurisdictional conference. Those non-voting spaces will be available until January 10, 2014. After that date, any remaining spaces will be made available across the church until we have reached our maximum capacity.
Registration will be available beginning October 1, 2013. All voting delegates should be chosen by this date to assure adequate time for visa acquisition and other preparation for involvement in the Convocation.
The cost will be $290USD for voting delegates and $390USD for non-voting delegates. This includes registration, lodging, food, and local transportation. Transportation expenses to Manila are in addition to the registration fee. Each participant will be expected to contribute to the cost of his or her involvement.
