DECATUR, Ga. – Registered attendance for the 2020 virtual CBF General Assembly topped registration numbers for each of the past five years with nearly 2,400 people registered for the event held June 25-26.

The registered attendance last week was 2,381. The General Assembly held in Greensboro, N.C., June 20-24, 2016, which was the celebration of CBF’s 25th Anniversary, is the next highest attended at 2,337.

Attendees participated in CBF ministry network and state and regional meetings, as well as partner and theological school events, workshops, worship and plenary sessions on Facebook Live, Zoom and Vimeo over the course of the two-day event. Johns Creek Baptist Church in Alpharetta, Ga., hosted the plenary and worship sessions.

Workshop sessions consisted of three blocks of workshops spread across the two days. Each workshop session featured a 20-minute recorded presentation followed by a live Zoom question and answer dialogue with the presenter. Between 50 and 100 attendees participated in each of the 20 workshops with numbers reaching as 300 for one workshop, two reaching near 150 and another at nearly 110.

Across the three blocks of workshops, there were more than 900 participants in the Zoom conversations after the pre-recorded content. Twelve CBF ministry networks also met on the morning of June 25 to begin the virtual General Assembly with nearly 400 participating in those events.
