In 2015, the General Assembly voted to make the Church of God Convention an every-other-year experience, thereby paving the way for smaller-scale Regional Conventions to take place during the even-numbered years. Three Regional Conventions took place in 2016, spread out across the country, and in no way ended up being sub-par events to the Church of God Convention. In fact, many who attended the Regional Conventions in Vancouver, Washington; Anderson, Indiana; and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, were astounded at the quality of these rich experiences. Broadening the scope of the Regional Conventions in 2018, five events are now scheduled to take place, making accessibility easier than ever.
