You will then receive a verification email with a link to proceed with completing your profile and the Big Tent registration page, so use a computer where you can receive emails when you start this process. Remember your user name and password so that you can log back in.

Those who registered for previous Big Tents, General Assembly, or other PC(USA) conferences in the last few years probably already have an account. Contact the G.A. Meeting Service if you do not remember your user name, and use the Forgot Password feature if you do not remember your password.

Checking the “Group” box on the Group/Family page (which appears after you complete your profile information) will then bring up additional pages for providing information about your family members.

Parents/guardians who are registering children for any of the Big Tent children/youth programs will use the family registration procedure.

Additional forms and releases required for those registered in the children/youth programs will be forwarded by the registrar.

Photography & Media Use

The 2019 Big Tent brings together hundreds of participants from across the church. Photographers, reporters, videographers, historians and many others will be capturing cherished moments at this gathering of the church. By being a part of this event, you may find your image, voice, or quotes used in reporting or promotion. The Open Meeting Policy of the PC(USA) calls on us to conduct our ministries in this spirit of openness, trust, and public scrutiny. By attending and participating, you give Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), A Corporation, its affiliated institutions, related entities, and ecumenical partners permission to use your image, voice, feedback, and quotes on a perpetual, worldwide, irrevocable basis in any and all media including, but not limited to, websites, print, cable, and broadcast media without submission or re-submission to you for approval. You understand that third parties accessing web pages can download your image, voice, and quotes, and you release Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), A Corporation, its affiliated institutions, related entities, and ecumenical partners from any liability to you, your heirs, or your assigns in connection with or arising out of such downloading by third parties.

Using a camera, camcorder, or tape recorder is permitted during conference sessions, provided that participants in the meeting are treated with courtesy and respect, the photographer does not obstruct the view of other participants, and camera flashes or other lights do not interfere with participants or proceedings.

During worship or other times of prayer, all participants and members of the press should be respectful of the sacred nature of the event. Photographs made with the use of existing lighting are permitted in these services if taken unobtrusively and without disrupting either the service itself or individual worshipers. Flash photography is not permitted.

We ask that those taking photographs or other images during Big Tent who use children as subjects assure that the child’s identity is protected, or receive permission from the parent/guardian.
