The Beaumont Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) is booking religious meeting business. Throughout the month of July 2018, the General Bowen Missionary Baptist District Association of Texas, the Baptist Missionary and Education State Congress of Christian Education and the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church Southeast Texas Region Annual Conference, all worked with the Beaumont CVB to host meetings in Beaumont, each ranging in size and purpose.

The General Bowen Missionary Baptist District Association of Texas held a senior women’s retreat, promoting fellowship among the women. The Baptist Missionary and Education State Congress on Christian Education, hosted by the Magnolia Missionary Baptist Church of Beaumont, organized a conference for both adults and children, focusing on evangelism and religious education. The Christian Methodist Episcopal Southeast Texas Region Annual Conference, hosted by Douglas Memorial Christian Methodist Episcopal Church of Beaumont, offered insightful teaching and worship.

The Beaumont CVB is proud to work with any religious leaders in the area who want to bring a convention or overnight meeting to Beaumont. “We depend upon the local affiliates of these religious groups to help secure Beaumont as a meeting destination,” said Rebecca Woodland, Convention Sales Manager. “I feel blessed to work with meeting planners in this faith-based market. I like to share all the sacred resources, peaceful sanctuaries and spiritual activities Beaumont can offer to religious groups so that their meeting experience may even be more spiritual. Whatever your faith, the Beaumont CVB is here to help throughout the planning process.”

Our local meeting contact for the Magnolia Missionary Baptist Church of Beaumont, Pastor Dwight Benoit, stated: “What a privileged calling to receive, to be a dynamic spiritual organism empowered by the Holy Spirit to share with as many people as possible in our Churches, our schools and our communities. This event offers a calling to be fulfilled and to expect, once the work is done, to hear our LORD and SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST.”
