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 about 50 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 [email protected].

Passport Program

Event attendees are encouraged to visit every exhibitor and learn about our vendors by completing a passport booklet. This program is supported by our marketplace partners. Attendees win prizes (donated by vendors) for getting their passport stamped at each booth.

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.

Shortly following the drawing, you will be notified by text if your name was drawn. Prizes can be picked up Friday at 6 pm during Community and Cocktails.

Exhibitor Registration

All invited exhibitors are approved by designated members of the APCE Annual Event Ministry Team with the expectation that exhibitors’ resources and mission statements will be compatible with the Christian and Reformed traditions of the five APCE denominations. Exhibitors agree with the terms of the contract. If you would like to receive an invitation, you may e-mail your request to: [email protected].

Partnership Program

Exhibitors can show their support of APCE’s mission to connect, enrich, empower, and sustain partners in Christian education by sponsoring a special event or an entire day of the APCE annual event. If your organization is interested in helping sponsor a special event or day at APCE, we want to hear from you! Please reach out to Christina Cosby and Kat Green at [email protected].
