With more than 9.8 million tithing members and 33,000 plus churches, the National Baptist Convention (NBC) has dedicated themselves to fulfilling the great commission of Jesus Christ through teaching, preaching, and during this pressing moment in history, healing.

Using health pods to provide mobile testing options, this initiative will bring together the public and private sectors to deliver community-based access to getting tested for COVID-19 and potential treatment.
