On Saturday, October 3, 2020 Rev. Dr. Albert L. Morgan, Pastor of Union Baptist Temple Church in Bridgeton, NJ hosted a successful voter registration drive. As the President of the New England Missionary Baptist Convention, President Albert Morgan implemented a NEMBC Voter Registration Drive. All NEMBC regional state presidents, vice presidents, delegates and concerned individuals were encouraged to join President Morgan in igniting the community to register, know your plan, participate in the process and VOTE. Each state was asked to identify a Saturday or day of their choosing to host a voter registration event. The photographs and video clips of the voter registration efforts posted to social media throughout the region. Using hashtags, #NEMBC #knowyourplan with each post in an effort to make sure as many people as possible are engaged, registering to vote and actually participating in the process to protect the integrity of the election. We must lay the groundwork for social, criminal and economic justice now.
These unprecedented times demand that we have a better grasp of history, our African American story, awareness, understanding of who we are and whose we are. As the oldest African American Convention of record, we want to remain connected, relevant and politically prominent to influence and engage others as a Convention to join us as we motivate others on social justice issues and uphold our proud heritage in the African American communities at large.
The Historic New England Missionary Baptist Convention has held its Annual Session every year since its inception May 16, 1874, serving more than 400 hundred churches in its 146-year history. We have a proud Heritage! In this unprecedented time with the COVID 19 Coronavirus pandemic, shutdowns, restrictions, limitations and social justice issues, we were unable to meet at our regularly scheduled session in April 2020.
God gave President Morgan the vision for New England Missionary Baptist Convention, to host a Virtual Leadership Conference & Convention. The 2020 theme is “Taking it EZEEE DURING A CRISIS” Everybody Zealously – Edifying the Body, Exalting the Savior and Evangelizing the World Ephesians 4:11-16.
