Technical Questions

If you do not have a smart device in order to download the ChurchPoint app for registration, you may register online through our web-based form.

If you need further assistance, please email annualmeeting@bgav.org for assistance.

All registrants need a unique phone number in order to register this year. If you do not have a unique phone number – meaning, you share with someone else planning to attend the meeting – please email annualmeeting@bgav.org or call 800-255-2428 for assistance.

All church messengers must register using their church’s unique messenger code that have been mailed out. All church codes should be 5 characters long. If the login code that was sent to you is only 4 characters long, please add a “0” (zero) at the front of the code (example: if you received a code that is “1234” you should enter “01234” as your login code).

If you continue to have issues, please email annualmeeting@bgav.org for assistance.

In order to register as a messenger, you must have your church’s unique messenger code. Please contact your church contact for this information. If you/your church does not have the correct login information, please email annualmeeting@bgav.org for assistance.

If you are attending this year’s meeting from an organization or company (not from a BGAV church listed in the app), please choose “2022 Annual Meeting” from the church dropdown menu when going through the preregistration process.

Livestream attendees will be able to access all “live” broadcasts of this year’s meeting by visiting the ChurchPoint app from their smart device or going to the Annual Meeting website at designated times throughout the meeting. Livestream broadcasts will begin 10 minutes before each main session time, and will end 10 minutes after each main session. View the Schedule page for information on these session times.

The BGAV is dedicated to providing access to everyone wishing to view this year’s meeting. Recorded versions of the meeting will be available for those who may not be able to view the meeting live. Call 800.255.2428 or email annualmeeting@bgav.org for details.

No messengers will be permitted to vote virtually. Livestream is intended for regular attendee viewing only.

General Questions

This year we are asking that all attendees register themselves for the meeting, as opposed to the church handling that on their behalf. This will give everyone a more personalized experience and full access to information and updates about the meeting. Once the messengers are decided on by the church, these individual messengers should register themselves as such in the app. Visit the Registration page for information on how to register.

Churches will be responsible for giving out their unique messenger code (included on the front sheet of the messenger packet) to all approved messengers. This is how your church will designate messengers for the meeting. Packets also include a helpful tips sheet that may be useful for your messengers and guests when registering, so please make copies or share the digital version with them.

If your church still wants to register all messengers: Please register messengers through the web-based form, using their individual phone numbers and email addresses. Once messengers are registered, they will receive a confirmation email containing information on how to download the ChurchPoint app.

To check if someone has registered: On the People tab in the 2022 Annual Meeting page of the app, all registered attendees will be listed along with their status (messenger, guest, exhibitor, staff, or virtual attendee).

As in typical years past, all in-person messengers will be asked to vote using paper ballots. There will be a recommendation this year for transitioning to a digital voting system moving forward, but for now all voting must be done in person. No messengers will be permitted to vote virtually.

Our guest speaker for this year is world-renowned author, speaker, and leader Carey Nieuwhof. We will also welcome Rev. Freddy Villarreal, pastor of Freedom Life Church in Hampton, VA.

Kate Campbell will lead us (in person this year!) during worship.

We require all attendees, including virtual attendees, to preregister if possible. To attend this year’s meeting virtually, please register through the app as a “Virtual Attendee.” Get more information about registering on the Registration page.

Unlike in years past, there is no paperwork or barcodes that you need to bring with you to the meeting as proof of registration. We will be able to find your name and preprinted nametag if you have registered. 

If your registration did not go through for some reason, you may go through the pre-registration process again or register onsite starting Monday afternoon, November 14. For questions about registration, visit the Registration page or email annualmeeting@bgav.org.

This year’s meeting will be presented in-person with a livestream component for main sessions and certain other gathering times. Even if you are not able to attend “live” with us, recordings will be made available via the Annual Meeting website.  Registering for the meeting means that you’ll be the first to know when that content is available for viewing. Visit the Registration page for more information.
