Email List Sign-Up and More

We need you to be aware that signing up for ANY Auxiliary email list will automatically add you to the Convention-Wide list. If you don't want or need to get auxiliary specific email, scroll down the signup list to get to the Convention-Wide list (we moved it to the bottom).

If you want to receive Auxiliary specific emails AND NOT those sent convention wide, please drop us a line and we can delete you from the master list.

(added 12/31/2023) We have created a new list called "Prayer Partners" and a new tab called "Prayer". When a prayer request is submitted and approved, it will appear under the "Prayer" tab AND it will be emailed to anyone who signs up for the "Prayer Partners" email list. (currently, signing up for this list WILL NOT add you to the Convention-Wide list to allow current members to add this list without being duplicated on the main list)

Thanks and God Bless!

Ron Elliott, Webmaster

National Laymen Prayer Call

100 Men Needed

We have already prayed and called on Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to eradicate COVID-19, now let us come together "Thanking and Praising" our Lord for what He is going to do. Remember Men, we walk by "Faith" not by sight (Hebrews 11:1). Please set aside time to participate in the National Laymen Prayer line Sunday and Tuesday Night to continue in prayer, communing with our Lord and Savior as He does His perfect work in our lives and in our nation. Calling all men of the National Baptist Laymen Movement to join in prayer and to be vigilant in seeking God through prayer.


The call is for 100 (+) men to join together every Sunday and Tuesday evening looking to God in prayer "Thanking Him" for healing, deliverance and comfort! 2 Chronicles 7:14, "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
