*Coming this October, the Church of God in Christ will host its 104th Holy Convocation in St. Louis, Missouri, and its expected to be the biggest convention of 2011 in the city.

The St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission says the 2010 convocation attracted 35,000 attendees that spent upwards of $35 million during the eight-day event. This year’s attendance is expected to supersede numbers in the past, positively impacting the local economy.

Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr. explains that this convention will be an opportunity for the members of COGIC to “set down our buckets to receive the latter rain of inspiration, 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.

The official Holy Convocation website has just launched and includes up-to-date information about the 104th Holy Convocation, including a list of events, speakers and musical artists for the week.

The event will take place Oct. 31-Nov 9 this fall.
