This year's convention, themed "Endeavoring to Keep Unity," is hosting an international clothing drive called "Cover New Orleans," to benefit more than 1,000 New Orleans residents. In collaboration with Habitat for Humanity and the Pentecostal Churches of Apostolic Faith (PCAF), convening in New Orleans Aug. 3-8, 2012, the PAW will also fund and assist in building a home for a family recovering from Hurricane Katrina.

The PAW is the second-largest predominately African-American Pentecostal church organization and the fourth-largest Pentecostal church organization in the world. It is also the oldest apostolic Pentecostal organization. The PAW has more than 5,000 churches in 25 countries and more than 1.2 million members in the U.S. Bishop Charles H. Ellis is the presiding Bishop of PAW and the Greater Grace Temple in Detroit, a 7,000-member church.

The PAW last convened in New Orleans in 2003, and this year's meeting is estimated to generate $7 million in economic impact.
