Greetings New York Annual Conference:

Restoration Revival: Resetting for the Journey

1 Peter 5:10   After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, the one who called you into his eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will himself restore, empower, strengthen, and establish you. (CEB)

District Conferences are over and we continue our Restoration Revival with the 223rd Annual Conference Session from June 22 thru 26, 2022.

In the last few weeks you received news of his event; you received a letter to submit reports and petitions; and you received news that the Annual Conference event would again be virtual. 

Much work is going on to get these days prepared so you might experience that sense of restoration revival.  All details and information will be on the NYAC website – go to and click on the banner.

Check the website frequently for details. Watch for registration! Reports and Petitions, as noted earlier, are due soon.
