Messenger Registration

Churches may register messengers for both the Baptist General Convention of Texas and Convención Bautista Hispana de Texas. Completed registration for each convention is required for messengers to vote during business sessions. Separate registration areas will be available for BGCT and Convención.

Pre-register online with your church’s BGCT ID #, which will be mailed to you.

Bring your messenger cards to the registration desk when you arrive. Messengers who do not have properly endorsed messenger cards must be processed through the Credentials Committee. Visitors are welcome to attend all sessions and can register on-site at the registration desk.
