Online pre-registration can be completed by messengers themselves, church clerks or other officers of the church.
The username and password that enable access to the system is printed
on the letter each church should have received at the end of September,
said Dale Lingenfelter, director of the LBC Business and Information
The letter also indicated the maximum number of messengers the church is allowed, based on its membership.
“We worked diligently to make this as easy and as efficient a process
as possible,” Lingenfelter said. “Everything we do in advance is
done so messengers don’t have to wait in long lines.”
“Our goal has been to create a very efficient registration process,
getting the convention information in messengers’ hands as quickly as
possible,” said Shana Johnson, Information Services Support Supervisor
at the Louisiana Baptist Convention.
