The 2015 Official Oratorical Contest Theme:
"Making Disciples for Christ"
National Baptist Congress of Christian Education
June 22-26, 2015
Then Jesus said to his disciples, “ If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.
For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?”
Matthew 16:24-26 NKJV
