Organizers for this year’s Big Tent celebration are expecting a large turnout for the gathering in Baltimore this summer. Registration is officially open for the event that is held in off years for the General Assembly.

The planning team has secured two lead hotels: Lord Baltimore and Radisson. Registration costs have been reduced to accommodate attendees and encourage families to come.

The theme for this year is “Called to a Movement Beyond Institution,” which is also the theme for the 224th General Assembly (2020), also being held in Baltimore.

The Reverend Dr. J. Herbert Nelson, II, Stated Clerk for the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), provides some insight on why Presbyterians should engage at Big Tent.
