Online Learning

Join us every Tuesday at 7:00 p.m ET for GC43 Tuesdays, a 60–90 minute FREE webinar to help prepare commissioners — and anyone who's interested — for General Council. Visit United in Learning for complete details and to register.

Join us to learn more about implementing the Calls to the Church—living out our commitment to reconciliation—two approaches to membership, the Office of Vocation, the new financial model, and more. We encourage commissioners and youth delegates to join us for as many of these as possible.

If you can’t attend live sessions of these webinars you can watch recordings afterward.

Also be sure to check out our Preparing for Council playlist on YouTube to learn more about what to expect at GC43 and meet members of the Local Arrangements Committee.
