National Baptist Congress Partners with Habitat for Humanity - Your help is needed!
By Dr. George W. Waddles, Sr., President, Congress of Christian Education | March 26, 2012
MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT WADDLES
Grace be unto you and peace from God our Father and the Lord, Jesus Christ. We thank and praise God for the gift of His grace in allowing us to gather together once again in our annual session. This year, we will gather in St. Louis, MO – “Gateway to the West” – June 18-22, 2012 for the 107th Annual Session of the National Baptist Congress of Christian Education. Our Dean, Dr. Elliott Cuff, and his staff have crafted over 300 classes that will help delegates in their pursuit of being dedicated followers of Jesus Christ. We are excited about those classes and plans that have been put in place to ensure that we will engage in fellowship, study and worship that will give glory to our God.
Our Congress week’s structure continues to offer celebratory worship experiences and events that will uplift the body of Christ. On our website, nationalbaptist.com under “Meetings and Events,” you will note the Congress of Christian Education with a menu of the schedule, registration information, how to register online, housing information, as well as Annual Session highlights. I would like to highlight these events and encourage your attendance and participation.
National Baptist Congress Partners with Habitat for Humanity
We thank our Convention President, Dr. Julius R. Scruggs, for giving us direction and permission to engage in this worthy endeavor. This year, the National Baptist Congress, in partnership with the St. Louis Host Committee and its chairman, Dr. Sammie Jones, will donate a house for a family in need. As we move toward the week of our Annual Session, we ask for your prayers and support for this awesome effort. You can join in this historically-groundbreaking event by helping us raise the $65,000 needed to complete the project.
In acknowledgement of those in the National Baptist family who have donated funds to build this house, we will unveil a lasting memorial. If we can move together, in Solidarity with the Savior, and have 130 churches who can donate $500, this will help us complete this building project.
Please send your donations to:

As we gather together, from States across this country, it will be a great testimony of our unfailing commitment to our God, who never fails in His love for us. What a joy it is, that we will acknowledge the powerful move of God, as National Baptists engage in worship, study, fellowship and outreach.
We look forward to meeting again, in Solidarity with the Savior.
In the Bonds of the Spirit,
Dr. George W. Waddles Sr., President
