Our State Congress Dean Ms. Loretta Miller and her team have been working hard to offer us a quality set of courses, seminars, and workshops. We know we have some of the best instructors in the country. That commitment to excellence was evidenced by Pastor Callaway Bains (Mt.

This year, we have two new seminar offerings: S301 Passion Week Teaching: Lessons from the Master Teacher Dr. Jevon Marshall, and S806 YAHWEH Shalom: The LORD Is Peace Pastor Bernard Montgomery. This will be the last year for Course 2092 A Christian View toward Racial Understanding - Pastor Callaway Bain.

About Your Congress

Vision: The Original State Congress work will reach completion at the Second Coming of Christ. In short, the vision of the State Congress is heaven (Hebrews 12.22-24; Revelation 21.2, 9-10; John 14.2).

Mission: The Original State Congress embraces the Great Commission (Matthew 28.19-20) as its mission seeking to save unsaved souls and help saved souls through Christian education.

Goals: Our Original State Congress goals are

To equip and train the people of God directly and indirectly by providing opportunities for local churches, districts, and other unions to be certified while fostering love, humility and unity;

To continue affiliation with the National Baptist Congress; and

To continue certification by the Sunday School Publishing Board (SSPB).

Brief History

The Original North Mississippi Baptist State Congress of Christian Education (Congress) traces its origin to the year 1938 with the expansion of the Paradise Sunday School and Baptist Training Union (BTU) under the leadership of Deacon Dan Robinson (New Hope-Walls). The BTU continued meeting annually until 1954. From 1954-1966, there was a period of inactivity. However, in 1966, the Congress was reorganized at Independent-Tyro as the North Mississippi Baptist Education Congress with Pastor L. S. Biles (Carroll Bluff) elected as president and Pastor V. B. Brown (St. Paul) as Dean. Other
