​Congress of Christian Education Annual Session

Dear Prospective Vendor:
Greetings! The National Baptist Congress of Christian Education [An Auxiliary of the National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc.] will hold its 112th Annual Session in St. Louis, Missouri, June 19-23, 2017. This year’s session will be held at the America’s Center with an anticipated attendance of more than 25,000 participants. While the main thrust of the meeting is Christian Education Training, our Convention sponsors an Annual Health Fair in conjunction with its H.O.P.E. (Health Outreach Prevention Education) Week activities. The health fair provides an opportunity for participating health organizations and non-profits to provide information about health-related issues to the delegates attending the session.
We would be delighted to have your organization participate in the 13th Annual Health Fair and partner with us as we strive to build healthy communities congregation by congregation. We have several sponsorship opportunities available. See the attached guide.
Our hope is that you will decide to participate this year. For more than a decade, participants attending the sessions have received life enriching and lifesaving information shared with them by hundreds of health oriented participants like you. We believe that your health-related message would add to this legacy.
