  1. I just sent an email but neglected to mention that we are not delegates but guests. Is there a registration cost and who is the contact person for lodging? Or should the Hotel be contacted directly for this?
    Thank you for your help.

  2. Currently, general conferences exist in the Philippines, the Caribbean, and North America, though The Wesleyan Church has recently begun a process of “internationalization” in which areas and regions of the world have the opportunity to form their own general conferences. Though it is too early to predict which general conferences will be formed in the coming years, the eventual shift is inevitable. The overarching goal of the internationalization process is to create a global network of partnership and not a “top-down” leadership structure within the worldwide church.
