Accessibility and Special Arrangements
Is signing for the deaf/partially deaf available at the meetings?
To find out if sign-language interpretation is available, please call 1-800-600-7395. If it is available for that event, when you arrive an usher can direct you to special seating.
Is Spanish translation available at the meetings?
To find out if language translation is available, please call 1-800-600-7395. If it is available for that event, when you arrive an usher can direct you to special seating.
I live outside the U.S., but plan to attend a U.S. event. Can KCM help me obtain an International Visa?
Not at this time. Because of the regulations surrounding nonprofit organizations, KCM is unable to take responsibility for international visitors. Our government would view our honoring such requests as accepting that responsibility and we are not equipped to do so. We know that if coming to America is part of God's plan for you, He will provide a way!
When were the first Believers’ Conventions and when did each speaker first become involved?
The first West Coast Believers’ Convention was held August 21-26, 1978, at the Anaheim Convention Center hall. We held our first Southwest Believers’ Convention August 17-21, 1981, at the Fort Worth Convention Center. In 2003, the Great Lakes Believers’ Convention was added. Kenneth and Gloria Copeland have been involved since the very first convention. Jerry Savelle joined the Copelands in 1980; Jesse Duplantis joined in 1991; Creflo Dollar joined in 1996. As the Lord leads, other speakers are invited to participate in conventions.
Why do you have six-day meetings?
It is Brother Copeland’s desire for the Body of Christ to meet together in accordance with Hebrews 10:25—“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.”
He was commissioned by God to conduct meetings where people can “totally immerse in the Word of God.” Our six-day meetings create an anointed environment where people:
- Feed on the Word of God
- Grow spiritually
- Share their faith
- Participate in the anointings of others
- Receive healing
- Worship and praise God.
A Believers’ Convention is a life-changing event with an atmosphere that produces results! And it all happens because of the move of the Holy Spirit and the shared corporate anointing of the Body of Christ.
What is Partner Day?
Partner Day is a special day when Kenneth Copeland acknowledges the work and achievements accomplished through the outreaches of Kenneth Copeland Ministries as a result of Partner involvement.
It’s a joyful time to see what a difference your seed has made in the lives of others, as well as the worldwide impact of partnership. From foreign-language television broadcasts to evangelistic meetings to one-on-one ministry to children in other countries, our Partners are changing lives!
What is Increase Day?
The Friday of each convention is designated as Increase Day—the day of joining in agreement for increase in the ministry and in the lives of our Partners and Friends.
What is Healing School?
Healing School is a place for everyone desiring healing and a deeper revelation on what God’s Word says about living in wellness. In this powerful service, Gloria Copeland will share faith-building scriptures and a life-changing message that will set you free!
Do I have to preregister for the convention, and is there a fee?
Though preregistration is not required, you will find it convenient and time-saving. All KCM conventions and campaigns are free and open to the public. You may preregister online or register upon arrival.
What is the dress code for the meetings?
Some people come in their Sunday best, others come casual. Dress comfortably, and consider bringing a jacket or sweater due to the air conditioning.
