First Week in September
The Annual Session of the National Baptist Convention, USA, which convenes during the first week of each September in a designated U.S. city, is the major business meeting of the group's boards, auxiliaries, and member churches. It lasts for five days and can attract up to 40,000 delegates. Each annual session typically has a theme, such as "Christian Music for the 21st Century," "The Call to Faithfulness in the Gospel Ministry," or "The Heavenly Vision and the Morals of the Church." During the annual session, delegates deal with business issues. However, they also share Christian fellowship and, through a series of forums, explore such issues as health and wellness, social justice, and empowerment, often with emphasis on their impact on the African-American community. Delegates also hear a keynote speech by the convention's national president and by such guest speakers as Barack Obama.
The National Baptist Convention, USA, founded in 1886, is the country's largest and oldest African-American religious convention, with about 7.5 million members. The group marked its 127th annual session in 2007.
