Greetings in the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ:
2020 National Primitive Baptist Convention, USA, Inc.
After much prayer and consultation with Vice President, Elder Dr. Oscar Montgomery, the Arrangements Committee and our Board of Directors, we have concluded it would be in the best interest of our Convention to cancel the traditional convention setting in Birmingham, AL at the Sheraton Hotel on July 19-24, 2020. Therefore, we will return to Birmingham in July 2024. The hotel has agreed to issue a full refund for the one night room and taxes that were collected when your reservations were made. However, each person must contact the hotel directly in order to receive your cancellation code and refund. (The telephone number at the hotel is (205) 324-5000.)
2020 National Primitive Baptist Convention, USA, Inc. 3-Day Virtual Shift Conference
A 3-Day Virtual Shift Conference is being planned to be held during the same time that the Convention would have met. More information relative to the Shift Conference is forthcoming.
National Primitive Baptist Convention, USA, Inc. Registration
Attached are two Registration Forms (General and Individual) for our cancelled convention. I am requesting all Pastors, Elders, Auxiliaries, Congresses, Members, Regions, State Conventions, District Associations, and Churches to register as soon as possible.
National Primitive Baptist Convention, USA, Inc. Reserve Fund
In 2019, we established a National Primitive Baptist Convention, USA, Inc. Reserve Fund in the amount of $350,000, in order to have on hand funds to pay Pre-Convention, Convention, and Board Meeting expenses. Many pledges were made and—to date—many pledges are still unpaid. We have collected approximately $21,000. Therefore, if you made a pledge and have not paid, please honor your pledge and pay. If you would like to pledge and you have not, please do so and pay as soon as you can. I pray that the Blood of Jesus Christ continues to cover you, your churches, and your families until we meet again and beyond.
Servant to all,
Kenneth A. Duke
Elder Dr. Kenneth A. Duke, General Convention President
