School is out, the grass is green, the wind is blowing, and the Lord was moving mightily at the local gathering of the 2019 ONLBDA Congress Of Christian Education, who assembled at the New Light Baptist Church on Sunday, June 9 thru Thursday, June 13, to celebrate their Annual Congress Of Christian Education. 


It was apparent that the churches and leaders had gathered during the week specifically to empower those attending the classes, workshops, and evening sessions that took place daily. Some of the classes that were conducted included Class 101, The Church, taught by Pastor Roger D. Carson; Class 102 Stewardship: Finances taught by Dr. John D. Walthall, III; Class 103 The Role of The Layman taught by Dr. Willie L. Perryman; Class 104 Knowing Yourself taught by Rev. John C. Jones; Youth Class taught by Minister Josh White and Sis. Nickie Hutchen; Junior Class taught by Minister Rochelle Strong and the Kindergarten/Toddler Class taught by Sis. Patricia Barrett and Sis. Brenda King. The classes took place daily at 5:30 PM - 6:45 PM.


Although the week was packed with inspiring services, the youth of the Congress had an opportunity to showcase their talents on Wednesday evening with special presentations from the Youth Choir, Praise Dancers, and an uplifting message from Rev. James Jones. Rev. John Jones was the Expeditor for the service by the Youth. The week of services had begun on Sunday with a Consecration Service, Dedication Of Instructors and special dress for the Men who wore Black and the Women wore White. 


When speaking with some of the Host for the Congress, they shared how impactful the week of services were for them and their church, stating that looking forward to the Congress always bring about great expectations and the results of the Fellowship always yield powerful returns on the week long gathering. Pastor Gerald Fletcher was Host of the Congress this year. The Ohio Baptist State Convention, Inc. President is Dr. Michael H. Harrison, Sr. and the Congress President is Rev. Donald E. Jones, Sr. 


We salute the Toledo Baptist participating churches and affiliates for a great week of impartation and fellowship among the brethren and sisters. May God continue to bless you!
