The Congress, attended by 30,000 delegates, is held each year in June at various locations throughout the United States.  A selection of more than 300 classes equip Christian education leaders with the necessary information and teaching techniques to fulfill their respective roles in their local ministries with excellence. The delegates may graduate or receive a Certificate of Progress after a prescribed program of study or simply take classes for general continuing education. 



To commemorate the occasion of the Congress returning to the City, the Local Host Committee prepared a 180 page Historical Souvenir Journal that chronicles some of the events of the past 27 years since the Congress last met in OKC and showcase the face of the National Convention in 2018.   A collection of information on the National Convention, State Conventions and the State of Oklahoma churches and their ministries, businesses and organizations, memorial tributes, as well as personal sentiments, are included.
