Event Planning

Welcome to Mt. Vernon Baptist Church Westwood Event Scheduling Process.

Event scheduling is an online event request portal designed to provide all ministries and individuals a uniform and efficient way to submit request for usage of space at MVBC.  Event scheduling will promote consistency in the handling of all requirements needed to fulfill requests and to identify the duties and responsibilities of all areas of services that would be needed for the success of your event.

Usage of space is defined as the use of conference rooms, classrooms, Banquet Hall, Multi-Purpose Center, Sanctuary, Lobby Area and outside grounds in Buildings A,B, and C. The request form will be used for the scheduling of all annual church events, special conferences, weddings, monthly ministry meetings, and special activities. The event scheduling form will be available to members on MVBC web page.

The church facility will open at 9:00 a.m. and close at 8:00 p.m. in association with any request for space usage

Event scheduling will provide several benefits for MVBC Church Family:

  • Provide an efficient means for the church to handle request from all of its ministries.
  • Provide means for scheduling services that are needed for each event to be successful.
  • Provide ministry leaders with a better planning tool for their event.
  • Eliminate overlapping of events.
  • Provide historical data to be used for future planning and review.
  • Provide financial data for budgeting and forecasting.
  • Provide a current list of all upcoming events that have been approved for execution

Process: The following are guidelines for all event requests:

  • All events must be submitted on Event Scheduling form six (6) weeks prior to date of event, via MVBC website
  • Form must be completed in its entirety before it can be submitted for approval
