Memphis, TN (BlackNews.com) — The Church of God in Christ 105th Holy Convocation will convene November 5th – November 12th 2012 in St. Louis, Missouri.

The Holy Convocation of the Church of God in Christ (COGIC) is expected to be the biggest convention of 2012 in St. Louis says the St. Louis Business Journal.

The St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission agrees the 2010 and 2011 convocations attracted 35,000 and 40,000 attendees respectively that spent upwards of $35 and $40 million during the eight-day conventions. This year’s convocation attendance is already expected to increase in size and economic impact to the region.

This convention says Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr. will be an opportunity for the members of COGIC “to be inspired, encouraged and provide an opportunity for instruction and the work of ministry.” The convocation is a time for the delegates to experience great speakers and some of the greatest gospel music singers in the nation.

One of the highlights of this year’s convention is Friday, November 9, 2012. The speaker will be the empowering gospel preacher and leadership expert Bishop Tudor Bismark of Zimbabwe.

TV Judge Greg Mathis will be the guest speaker at the annual Presiding Bishop’s “We Care” Scholarship Banquet sponsored by COGIC Charities on Saturday, November 10, 2012 at 3pm in the America’s Center Grand Ballroom. Award winning gospel singer Micah Stampley is the musical guest.

Presiding Bishop Blake will deliver the official message of the convention on Sunday, November 11th in the Edward Jones Dome at 9am. This year’s theme is “Seeking God’s Way…through Obedience and the Word.”

The official Holy Convocation website includes up to date information about the 105th Holy Convocation including a list of speakers and musical artist for the week. Go to www.cogic.org and click on the Holy Convocation banner for more information.
