World church leaders and influential speakers will share messages of hope at the upcoming Adventist Virtual Global Campmeeting organised by the General Conference (GC), to be held from May 19 to 23.
Designed to mirror a physical campmeeting, the online event will feature inspiring speakers, seminars, workshops, prayer sessions, networking and “booths” where church organisations, supporting ministries and businesses can reach Adventists around the world.
The virtual campmeeting replaces the GC2021 Virtual Exhibition Experience, which was to coincide with the GC session in May last year.
“The GC Session was postponed to 2022 due to the on-going pandemic, however, our need to meet as a global church may be greater than ever before,” the GC website read.
Organisations and ministries are encouraged to purchase virtual booths, where videos, files and graphics can be uploaded, as well as seminars in the “auditorium”. They have been uniquely designed to resemble a physical booth where ministries can engage with their audience.
“Many of us who have grown up as Seventh-day Adventists, have fond memories of Campmeetings. While many of our church members can’t meet physically, we can still have a memorable and impactful Campmeeting,” the GC website reads.
“The Adventist Virtual Campmeeting is a great opportunity for broader fellowship and understanding of others and what is happening in the Seventh-day Adventist Church around the world,” echoed South Pacific Division (SPD) president Pastor Glenn Townend. “The SPD is one of the smallest Divisions and also quite isolated because of time differences. Being able to connect with top world presenters and also learn with people from other Divisions and cultures will broaden our perspective. I hope people join in with this virtual campmeeting.”
