The 49th session of Annual Conference, scheduled for June 9-12, 2019, (Sunday - Wednesday) will be moving from the Gold Dome to the Shreveport Convention Center.
“We’re excited to move Annual Conference to the state-of-the-art convention center in Shreveport,” says Bishop Cynthia Fierro Harvey. “We believe this move will energize the conference and all of the delegates as we strategize the mission of the Louisiana Conference. This move gives us the creative luxury to reimagine Annual Conference to ensure our time together is fruitful and inspiring.”
The Annual Conference Design Team has been intentional in listening and incorporating the feedback of delegates.
“In reviewing the feedback over the past several years, it’s clear that we’ve simply outgrown the Gold Dome,” says Rev. Lane Cotton Winn, design team chair of the Annual Conference. “In addition to updated facilities and greater accessibility, the 350,000 square foot Convention Center has significantly more space which will allow us to stay in a central location and spend more time together.”
The Convention Center is located downtown
adjacent to the Shreveport Hilton
, a four-star 313 room suite hotel which will offer affordable block rates for our time together in June. The Center is also located just half a mile from First United Methodist Church Shreveport
, which will continue to host our Celebration of Ministry service of licensing, commissioning, ordination and passing of the mantle.
