Renewing Worship (the worship & music arm of the Baptist State Convention of NC) is hosting this conference with Calvary Baptist Church. The BSCNC represents a convention of 4,300 churches in NC. Non-Baptist churches will be invited to the conference after a few weeks of registration.


This is the first year of the Renewing Worship EXPO. It is a follow-up to a LeadWorship Conference we hosted with Paul Baloche in 2017 with over 1000 in attendance. We do not have a good estimate of the number of participants we will have this year, although we are hoping for over 400 in the first year. We have a contingency plan of moving to a larger venue near the current one if numbers begin pushing 500. We intend to make this event an annual or biennial event. Vendors at our first event will receive invitations first for our future events.

We can accept a limited number of exhibitors at this event. Exhibitors will have a 6’ table for display in the gathering area of a designated exhibit area at the rear of the worship center. They will have electricity and internet (wireless) available to them. Generic black table covers are available, if needed. Vendors may also be able to teach a 90-minute breakout session as space is available for an additional fee. Classes must be first approved since space is limited. If you are interested in more than one session and there is space available after all vendors have been secured, you may be able to lead another session at no cost.
