The Congress of Christian Education, of the Eastern Region of PNBC, Inc., seeks first, to uphold the mission and purpose of our National Congress of Christian Education.
Understanding and embracing the awareness that “The Church of our Lord Jesus Christ is still challenged by old enemies who have disguised themselves in new ways to threaten the sacred foundation of which the Church was founded.” That being said; our shared image of Christian Education, is that “it continues to be the bedrock of PNBC's mission and vision to combat the forces of evil that has revealed itself on every level of human existence.”
And upon that bedrock, the Congress of Christian Education, of the Eastern Region of PNBC, Inc., endeavors to keep at the forefront of our work, Congresses, Workshops, and Sessions, that meet the educational needs of both our adult and youth delegates, even amidst positional challenges, based the timing of Regional Meeting. However, despite timing, finance, and other physical challenges, the need for Christian Education, for all ages, is not invalidated.
The Congress of Christian Education, of the Eastern Region of PNBC, Inc., is committed to not only putting forth meaningful Annual Congresses and Meetings, but to the commission of being a support to all State Conventions, District Associations, and Churches, that are a part of this Eastern Region of the Progressive National Baptist Convention, Inc.
Therefore, the Eastern Region Congress team, continues to work towards vital Christian Education opportunities, as we seek new models, and new ways to engage both adults and youth of this Region.
Upholding the idea that “The purpose of the Congress of Christian Education is to be the workhorse and the workforce of promoting globally the Christian Education mission of PNBC Churches.”
