Marketplace and Bookstore

APCE Marketplace includes the event bookstore, The PC(USA) Store, stocked with their newest resources, as well as titles and materials from other publishers, and approximately 50 additional vendors and exhibitors.

The Marketplace serves as the community center for our Annual Event, and we are excited for your organization to join this community of partners in Christian education. We invite you to journey with our Annual Event attendees as we come, rest, walk, and watch God’s unforced rhythm of grace enfold us.

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” (Matthew 11:28-30, The Message)

Come, get away with us as we lean into God’s unforced rhythms of grace. For more information, reach out to

It is simple. Pick up a passport booklet in the Marketplace, visit each booth in marketplace, and put the fully stamped booklet in the “passport” box by the exhibit hall entrance before 12 p.m. on Friday, January 27, 2023.
