At the 19th Annual NBCC International Convention in Miami, Florida, Bethel’s Place Black Chamber of Commerce (BPBCC) was formally recognized as the “2011 NBCC Chamber of the Year.”

BPBCC is presently the only church-based chamber of commerce in the nation, and is headquartered in Houston, Texas.  Formed in October, 2010, they have experienced phenomenal growth.

This unique Chamber has quickly moved to the forefront as a strong advocate for business and job creation focused on developing and revitalizing depressed communities at the local, national and international level.

They do so by facilitating collaborative and joint business ventures / partnerships complemented by education, training and implementation of the “Community Business Success Model.” The BPBCC has a genuine desire and success-oriented approach towards spotlighting, nurturing and embracing young business owners and entrepreneurs.
