COGIC Is Going Home: Possible return of COGIC Conventions to the City of Memphis??!?!

Calm down, I'm not talking about  the church’s annual convocation that moved to St. Louis in 2010. No I'm talking about one of the organization other money making conventions.


According to the chatter on the net, the Church of God in Christ could be bringing one of the convention biggest money making convention back to Memphis next year. According to reports COGIC is in negotiations with the city to bring its women’s convention and Auxiliaries in Ministry convention to Memphis in 2014 and 2015, respectively.


 If a deal is reached, each event could bring 10,000 to 15,000 people to the city, said John Oros, vice president and COO of the Memphis Convention and Visitors Bureau. “These are conventions they've always done,” Oros said. “It’s the wish of the presiding bishop to try to place one, if not several conventions, back in Memphis.”
