Why you should be a sponsor/secure a booth?

The CALLED Pastors Family Convention is the singular event where almost all of the pastors and Volunteer Lay Pastors of Seventh-day Adventist churches will be present.

In 2015 attendance was about 5,000. By all reviews, the 2015 was a spectacular success. CALLED convention has tremendous brand value among pastors and we expect the numbers to approach 7,000 in 2020. 

Pastors have primary decision-making ability on most purchases and high influence in everything else.

Pastors crave relevant resources. One of the primary reasons pastors attend CALLED is they are looking for vendors who can supply solutions to their needs. They want to meet you and see what you can do for them. 

With sponsorship you will have the ability to connect with pastors in our marketing campaign before the event, at the event itself, and you will be able to follow up after the event with our follow up communication. 

You will have the satisfaction that you helped increase the effectiveness of pastors by underwriting the CALLED family convention.
