To volunteer, please complete BOTH of the following registrations:

You ALSO need to register with General Conference as an observer. The cost is $7 in advance (but it may be free if this is an economic hardship for you). By doing this ahead of time, you will make your entry to the sessions much easier – your badge will be ready to pick up on site.  

LYNC is using a volunteer platform called Volgistics to organize our volunteer force at GC2019. This will be how we will handle scheduling, communication, etc. at St. Louis. Once you register,  you will receive an email from Jan Lawrence at RMN with further instructions, including how to access the information portal and sign up for “Volunteer 101.”

Other things to do before arriving:

  • Arrange for your own lodging in St. Louis. The LYNC Leadership team has reserved a meeting space across the street from the Convention Center at the Holiday Inn, at 811 North Ninth St, which we can all use during the day. But LYNC is not making overnight housing arrangements for volunteers this year.

  • Pack a care kit for the homeless (hygiene items, new underwear and socks, and lightly used clothing).

  • Read and endorse LYNC’s vision statement.

  • Follow us on social media.

  • Make a donation to LYNC, and invite friends and family to do the same in order to show their support.

  • Set the alarm on your phone for 2:23 PM each day. When it goes off, say a prayer for the United Methodist Church. 2/23 is start day for the special session. Prayer is powerful!
