BECOMING ONE IN CHRIST
I say unto you, be one, and if you are not one, you are not mine.
—Teachings and Commandments 22:7
This conference is for all people, everywhere in the world, to join together in worship of Jesus Christ. That worship will include singing, breakout sessions, partaking of the sacrament, listening to speakers, youth activities and socializing. Much has been said about the need to become “one” and fellowship together to learn how to collectively keep the Covenant. We are preparing ourselves, and this conference, in faith that we will have a greater capacity after this time together to not dispute, forgive, and continue to change our hearts individually and collectively.
The conference will be held in Boise, Idaho. All are invited to participate as they feel inspired. Because of travel, venue limitations, and family obligations, we understand that many who want to participate may not be able to attend live. We will provide recordings of the prepared talks delivered by the conference’s three speakers. This will be provided free of charge for all people, everywhere in the world. Full details about the audio recordings will be posted shortly after the conference.
Please note that this website offers information about the conference according to the best information we have available. Details are subject to change. Please check the site often for updates or changes as we get closer to the conference.
We hope that all who attend this conference will take the time to review the Answer to Prayer for Covenant as given on Sunday, September 3, 2017. Much of the preparations for this conference have come from our Lord’s words contained in this revelation.
Reviewing this material before the conference will help each participant enter a state of mind conducive to receiving instruction, hearing the Lord’s voice and finding charity in their heart.

Because we recognize many people will travel from all over to gather for the conference, we’ve included several optional, social activities for attendees to fellowship, socialize, and get to know other like-minded people. The actual conference meetings will be held Saturday beginning at 10:00 AM and Sunday beginning at 9:00 AM. The conference meetings will include music, breakout sessions, speakers, and sacrament. Please feel free to attend as many, or as few of the activities as you choose. The purpose of this conference is twofold, to hear the word of the Lord, and also to provide an opportunity to fellowship with each other. Please attend the activities that will be most valuable to you.
Events in in blue are official conference activities and in green are optional social-focused activities, The schedule is subject to change.

There are two 75 minutes slots for breakout sessions planned for Saturday afternoon. The organizing committee is looking to the general body for people to lead or facilitate a session or suggest a topic for a session. This includes sessions intended for children and teens. Everyone is invited to share their gifts with the group as a whole.
The overall theme of the conference is Keeping the Covenant. As recently taught, this can only be done as a group. General Conferences represent an infrequent opportunity to gather together as a large body with fellow believers. Please review the Answer to Prayer for Covenant (click here) and prayerfully consider what important topics you would like to hear or be willing to share.
Please submit by July 31. Note that not every submission may be accepted. Thank you for your contribution!
The three main locations will be Lambert Neighborhood Park, Municipal Park, and the Jewett Auditorium. Each of the locations has been selected because of specific features that will be used for activities. These includes picnic tables, pavilions for shade, playgrounds for children, river access for baptisms, a theatre for speakers, etc. The different venues provide a nice variety of settings for the conference activities.

Kristin Armstrong Municipal Park is a 28-acre urban park along the Boise River in Boise, Idaho, USA. The park features access to the Boise Greenbelt, birding, Boccee Ball, open play areas, playgrounds, and restrooms.
All Saturday activities will take place at Municipal Park. The park is close to many restaurants and grocery stores in the downtown Boise area, and is very safe.

Jewett Auditorium is a grand, 850-seat proscenium house used for ceremonies, concerts, plays, guest speakers and more. The space provides some of the best unamplified acoustics in the Northwest. The auditorium also houses one of the oldest organs in the state of Idaho.
We realize that smaller children may have a hard time sitting quietly through an indoor, four hour meeting. We hope that each family will carefully consider how to best help their children and the other conference attendees have the most spiritually uplifting and divinely inspired experience possible.

Attendees should be prepared to pay for normal expenses, such as traveling costs, housing costs and meal costs, however, there will be no charge for admission to any of the events.
