General Conference Registration Fee News

We had our sectional conference recently, and our DS told us that the reason for the fee is because GC went in debt $500,000.00. When several ministers asked why, he said he was not privy to that information.

He stated that everyone would be required to pay the $25 registration fee, and that any local guests (sinners) would be required to pay as well. He stated that we (ministers) should be willing to pay their entry fee for them.

What happens when this entry fee doesn't fix the problem?

Maybe for the (sinner) guests...We could call it a "Baptismal Fee"....

There are not 20,000 in attendance. More like 14,000.

if only 15,000 of those attending are adults...that would come out to 375,000.... thereby only costing HQ (which has no monies ) 125,000

Now that is smart...

I guess the street meetings are over tho.. if we are charging the guest...

I bet we can almost guarantee that fee will go up quite regularly in the years to come.
