On-Site Registration Information
Voting and advisory delegates and representatives are reminded that the 63rd Regular Convention of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod will be held in the George R. Brown Convention Center in downtown Houston, July 14-19. The Opening Convention Worship Celebration with Holy Communion will begin at 4 p.m. on Saturday at the convention center. Following a Service of Prayer on Sunday morning at 8 a.m., the first official business session of the convention will begin at 9 a.m. Sunday.
All registered delegates and representatives should have received housing and travel information by this time. If this is not the case, the district office should be notified. If a delegate is unable to serve, the district secretary should be informed immediately so that he can properly register the alternate delegate with the secretary of the Synod.

Friday, July 13 — Noon to 6 p.m.

Visitors to the convention are not required to register. Members of the working press are asked to register in the LCMS Convention Media Center, Room 360.
