Using the model in 2015 for Texas groups to welcome and serve visitors to GC Session
|Welcoming visitors to 61st GC Session in Indianapolis in June 2020|
|January 6, 2020|
I am pleased to announce the launch of a new group for Adventists in the state of Indiana. This group will operate similar to the other geographic groups on LINKEDin E-ventists in Atlanta ♦ E-ventists in California ♦ E-ventists in Florida ♦ Adventists in Ohio ♦ E-ventists in New England ♦ E-ventists in Texas ♦ E-ventists in Tennessee ♦ E-ventists in Illinois ♦ E-ventists in Washington DC ♦ E-ventists in Canada ♦ E-ventists in Europe - E-ventists in Netherlands ♦ E-ventists in South America ♦ E-ventists in Brazil ♦ E-ventists in Australia and New Zealand -- however, the 61st GC Session which will be held in Indianapolis in June 2020 presents an opportunity to serve the thousands of Adventists who are on LINKEDin and want to follow the GC Session.
In 2010 the Atlanta group was able to utilize the LINKEDin technology for groups to prepare a warm welcome for the visitors attending the GC Session in Atlanta; in 2015 the Texas group was able to utilize LINKEDin technology for groups to follow the GC Session in San Antonio; we can build on that experience and show real hospitality and services to our brethren attending the GC Session in 2020. I expect people will even join LINKEDin just to be involved with this project . . .
Logo for group coming soon it will look like

the LOGO will look like the group for attending 2015 session
|We have plans to create a group for the Lake Region Conference (see their website ) - but waiting for conference leaders to respond. They call their project Impact Indiana|
|We plan to create another subgroup for the churches in Indianapolis. Adventists in these groups will plan and organize services to help the visiting members from outside the Indianapolis area and especially visitors from outside the USA. Services like, travel information, transportation, tour guides, Child Day Care, language translation, guide to vegatarian eating places, lost and found, finding affordable or last minute accommodations, emergency help, testimonials and as many sharing and fellowship based functions as the Holy Spirit inspires us to think of.|
Visitors will not be able to join the conference subgroups and will not have access to the discussions there, interaction between Indianas and visitors will happen on the main group and these subgroups:
Going to 2020 GC Session in Indianapolis
Visitors Guide to Vegetarian Eating in Indianapolis
Translation Services for GC Session
Child Day Care for GC Session in 2020
another subgroup coming to list the booths at the convention center
|This has the potential to be the largest group for Adventists on LINKEDin because of the great interest in the GC Session. LINKEDin allows us to have as many goups as are needed. Churches and ministries in Indianapolis area can have their own subgroup.|
|I decided to launch this group six months before the GC Session to organize Adventists in Indiana, and soon the Adventists who are planning to attend the GC Session will be able to find Adventists living in Indiana and the Indianapolis area with mutual interests or common grounds for friendship, and when they arrive in Indianapolis for the Session it will be like meeting an old friend.|
|This was done in 2010 with the 59th GC Session with the creation of the group for Adventists in Atlanta, this group is now called E-ventists in Atlanta, and still has over 300 members, with 130 members still in the subgroup called Attending GC Session.|
|This was also done in 2015 for the 60th GC Session with the creation of the group for Adventists in Texas, this group is now called E-ventists in Texas, and still has over 400 members, with 250 members still in the subgroup called Attending GC Session in San Antonio|
I hope to improve on this and make the 61st GC Session memorable for many visitors and after the Session the Indiana group will continue to function, just as the Atlanta group is still growing nine years after the 59th Session ended.

|I will create discussions on other LINKEDin groups for Adventists to answer any questions.|
