The archives seminar will be held May 29 at Angelus Temple in downtown Los Angelus. The sessions will begin at 9:00 AM and end at 4:00 PM that afternoon. This will permit time to tour Angelus Temple and still arrive on time for the evening PWC service.

Directions: The Foursquare Headquarters building and Angelus Temple are 2 miles north of downtown Los Angeles.

Coming from the north on I5 or from the east on the 210 freeway - take the 2 freeway south until it empties onto Glendale Blvd. Continue for 1 mile until you see the 10 story building ahead of you. This is the Foursquare Headquarters building. Continue on Glendale Blvd. just past this building. Turn right into the parking lot immediately past Park Ave.

Coming from the airport or other directions - Drive toward downtown Los Angeles and get on the 101 freeway going north. Take the Echo Park Ave. exit and continue straight after the stop sign onto Echo Park Ave. Turn left at the next intersection which will be Park Ave. Turn left onto Glendale Ave. and immediately turn right into the parking lot.

Walk up Park Ave. turning right at Sunset Blvd. to reach the entrance of the building. A Cal-Fed bank is on the first floor. Our group will be meeting on the 3rd floor.

The 19th PWC is significant because it will celebrate the pentecostal centennial. In recognition of this milestone, special sessions will be held on pentecostal history during the conference. In addition, there will be three days of special tours that will focus on Azusa St. and other major sites in the area. Space is limited for the tours, so register early for one of these special tours led by Dr. Cecil M. Robeck, Jr.

The PWC brochure provides space for one to register for the archives seminar. The registration fee is $25. Most of the same information is now provided on the PWC web where one was able to register online. For general questions about the PWC schedule [incomplete] and housing, please visit the official web:
