God First Holy Convocation 2021
April 16th - 18th, 2021


The God First Holy Convocation: Virtual Experience is a two-day spiritual enrichment conference ONLINE designed to empower, engage, and equip people with the tools needed to live a more abundant life. The experience provides multiple and meaningful opportunities to learn and be inspired through digital engagement by some of the nation's top faith leaders. The whole world is adapting to the new reality caused by COVID-19, especially the black church. It is time for the church to EMERGE into the vehicle that will help the world navigate a new way of existing. Who will we be? How will we communicate? What do we do when we are limited to how we can gather? Be prepared to worship, learn, and develop a new way of doing ministry as we continue aiming for the next level.
