The Congress of Christian Education is the educational arm of the Louisiana Home and Foreign Missions Baptist Convention, Inc. We are responsible for the delivery of teaching and training classes that cover every facet of Christian Education. Our Educational Classes offer a learning experience to help individuals to grow not only spiritually in their work, but also prepare them to witness in the world today.

Our purpose is to develop the skills of Christian workers and to prepare the next generation of leaders who will shape the future. We are facing daily challenges in the world such as the Pandemic, Mask Shootings, and many other forms of tragedies. With the help of God, we must reach out to our future generation, being church or unchurched, and commit to giving them the Education in God’s Word. The Word of God, if applied could very well save our lives, homes, churches, communities, and our Nation.

We declare and reaffirm that God’s Mission for our Congress of Christian Education involves ministering to the spiritual, and intellect.

The Health Awareness Team (HAT) is dedicated to enhancing the health and well-being of our members and communities. Through the combined efforts of churches, associations, organizations, professionals, and community leaders, the Health Awareness Team (HAT) will provide programs that will improve awareness and educate the public.

Music Department

Music is a dynamic element in the life and work of the church. It has become an integral part of worship. The use of music in worship is perhaps as old as man himself. Music history bears witness to this fact. Both the Old and New Testaments give an account of music in worship. Christian music provides for spiritual contact to that inner, personal response of man to melodious strains and lyrics through which Scriptural messages flow. These messages give guidance to worshipping, witnessing, ministering, and applying Christian principles in everyday life.

Ushers' Auxiliary


A church usher is a person who helps ensure a smoothly running church service and who ministers to people in a variety of practical ways. The specific responsibilities of an usher vary with the church, but his duties usually include greeting people as they arrive for the service, assisting people with special needs, and collecting the offering. Some churches provide a pin or name tag of some kind to easily identify their usher.
