Annual Meeting: Messenger Registration - 2014
Messenger Registration is Available through Two Options
Each cooperating Florida Baptist church or mission is permitted to send at least three elected messengers to the annual meeting of the Florida Baptist State Convention. Based upon a church's membership total a congregation can designate up to a maximum ten duly elected messengers.
1. Pre-register Online:
A pre-registration process is available and can be facilitated online and will be available from September 8 until 12 midnight November 6, 2014. Church staff who prefer to pre-register their church’s messengers can go to https://fl.sbcworkspace.com (Please use your church login, which is the same one used for submitting the ACP). Following the step-by-step process, the messenger’s registration document should be printed and given to the respective church member. This document must be brought to the State Convention registration desk to be located in the lobby of Church at the Mall, Lakeland.
A special information flier will be sent to each church in September. The flier contains instructions for online registration and will provide the two required pieces of information to access the pre-registration website page: a username and a unique password.
2. Order Messenger Cards:
Church leadership that prefer not to use the online pre-registration process can still secure messenger registration cards. To secure messenger cards, call 1-800-226-8584, ext. 3151.
Once the cards are received at the church the moderator or clerk must sign and date the card. This card is to be given to the respective messenger. This completed card must be brought to the State Convention registration desk to be located in the lobby of Church at the Mall, Lakeland.
Completing the Process:
The registration area will open beginning from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, November 9; from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday, November 10; and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, November 11. Messengers must bring the computer-generated document or the printed messenger card to the State Convention registration desk to be located in the lobby of Church at the Mall, Lakeland.
