United Pentecostal Church General Conference

Wikis > United Pentecostal Church > United Pentecostal Church General Conference

The annual General Conference is the highest authority in the UPCI, with power to determine articles of faith, elect officers and determine policy. A General Superintendent is elected to preside over the church as a whole. On October 1, 2009, David K. Bernard was announced as the new General Superintendent

The very first General conference was held in St. Louis, Missouri when Pentecostal Church Incorporated (PCI) and Pentecostals Assemblies of Jesus Christ (PAJC) merged.
