New Convention Website

The National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc. continues to strive to meet the ever growing and ever changing needs of its constituents.

Some of the features that will be available on the new NBC USA, Inc. website include:

  • Ability to integrate with many social networks such as Facebook and Twitter
  • Receive text messages updates on your cell phone
  • Online giving
  • Full screen video playback, thereby eliminating many of the antiquated forms of video playback that exists on many current website formats.

The new website is being built under the direction of the TOPIC Ministry by our preferred website vendor, Church Webworks ( free of charge to the Convention.  Church Webworks also offers Convention members full service, affordable websites that are easy to set up and maintain and have state of the art features and graphics.
