The North American Christian Convention exists to provide ideas, inspiration, and identity to Restoration Movement Churches, ministries, and their leaders.
The North American Christian Convention is an open gathering of Christians; it is not a delegate convention or a convention of churches. The NACC provides a non-denominational opportunity for Christians to come together to hear grace and truth preached, participate in inspiring singing, engage in strategic networking, connect through enriching fellowship and visit resourceful displays. Hosted by independent Christian Churches and Churches of Christ, the NACC gives special emphasis to the restoration of the church according to the plan revealed in the New Testament.
Each year, the exhibit hall includes displays from hundreds of different organizations including Christian colleges, missionaries, churches, non-profit ministries, and publishing houses.
The Exhibit Hall is the place where hundreds of organizations meet up with thousands of attendees from all over the world to share stories of God's goodness, gather new ideas, and connect with friends new and old.
Exhibitors represent college & universities, missionaries, architects & builders, software companies, childrens' homes, artists & musicians, church planters, retirement homes, para-church ministries, publishers, and other businesses providing products and services to support the ministry of the local church.
Now is your opportunity to join with more than 250 companies and ministry organizations. Share your message and business with 8,000 church leaders, pastors, elders, staff members and families of Christian Churches and Churches of Christ from across the United States, Canada and around the world.
The NACC began in 1927 as a convention for vocational Christian leaders. Since the 1960s, the NACC has been an annual four-day summer convention attracting many vocational and non-vocational Christian leaders and their families.
The NACC office is not a denominational headquarters office. Each of the churches in North America that identify themselves as part of the fellowship of "Christian churches and churches of Christ" is independent and autonomously governed.
We have no official denominational organizational structure or polity. The only statement of faith of our 1.6 million members is the New Testament Scripture, and our only creed is Christ.
