Despite concerns about Ferguson, St. Louis’ largest convention is returning for at least another three years.

“We have chosen to return to St. Louis through 2019 because we like St. Louis and from every indication, the city likes that we are a part of its convention schedule,” said Keith Kershaw, director for the office of convention planning for the Church of God in Christ, the largest Pentecostal church in the United States.

About 28,000 people attended last year’s convocation, and according to the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission, the event, which has been in the city since 2010, has led to an estimated $98 million in spending in the region in the last five years.
