The South Central Jurisdictional Conference and the Great Plains Annual Conference offers conference related agencies and organizations a place to showcase their ministries and services to the clergy, lay delegates and visitors who attend this four day session. The South Central Jurisdictional Director will have final decision on the inclusion of material in a booth; they will make that decision based on the social principles of the Book of Discipline.

  • Booths include one 6’ x 3’ long table, draped on three sides, and 2 chairs. Electrical outlets will be near each booth, but bring your own extension cord.
