Dear National Baptist Convention USA Incorporated:


Indeed, I’m honored to be appointed Dean for this 115th Session of our Congress.

I wish to thank President Jerry Young and President Elliot Cuff for their faith in allowing me the opportunity to help forge Christian Education during this critical period in the life of our denomination.

As we are Envisioning the Future Exceptionally, it is our prayer that the curriculum of the Congress will address the needs of our churches.  I’m excited about the direction our Convention leadership is taking as we strive to strengthen the Message of the Master.

In the 21st century, the church is facing unique challenges which I believe can only be combat by developing Christian education to a level of competence that surpasses the status quo.  We need to speak to this generation with clear biblical doctrine and address the issues that confront the 21 century Christian that are being overlooked. I pray that as we expand our curriculum together that each member of our Congress staff and faculty  will strive for excellence and will embrace 2 Timothy 2:15 “ study to show ourselves approve unto God  a workmen that need not to be a shame but rightly dividing the word of truth.”

As we  move forward together as outline in Ephesians 4:12 -13, “ For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the statue of the fullness of Christ,” I know that our Congress Mission will be accomplished.

Keeping Christian Education Exceptional,

Dean Carl L. Washington Jr.,
