222nd General Assembly (2016)

June 18 - 25, 2016

Portland, OR


The General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) meets biennially in even-numbered years. It consists of commissioners elected by each of its 172 presbyteries. The GA is full of activities: business sessions, committee meetings, an exhibit hall, daily worship services, and mission tours sponsored by the  Committee on Local Arrangements. 

The assembly acts on hundreds of items of business, which it receives through the reports and recommendations of various assembly entities, and through overtures from synods and presbyteries.

The 222nd General Assembly (2016) will be held in Portland, Oregon - June 18 - 25, 2016.

  3. I live in Portland, If anyone needs ideas for spouses/children/family activities please let me know. I have special connections with Gresham Skate World, a roller skating rink that is easily accessible by light rail (MAX). I can score you some reduced price family passes, a schedule, and driving or MAX directions.

  4. Hilda: In 2008, I had the opportunity to attend the 2008 General Assembly in San Jose Calif as a commissioner from Pittsburgh Presbytery. This was a powerful experience for me. I saw the Body of Christ in action. I hope that you will have the opportunity to visit the 2016 General Assembly. This is an experience that you will not forget. May our Lord continue to bless both of you.
