Munce Group's Christian Product Expo (CPE) kicks off this weekend, with the event featuring the premiere of the next release from the creators of the best-selling Facing the Giants and Fireproof.

CPE Nashville 2010 is to be held Sept. 12-14 at the Embassy Suites Murfreesboro Hotel & Conference Center in Murfreesboro, Tenn.

The event opens Sunday, Sept. 12, with a Bible conference featuring Elizabeth and Jim George. After the Night of Worship segment featuring Bebo Norman later that day, CPE will feature a screening of Courageous--a police drama addressing issues of fatherhood that likely will not be released in theaters until fall 2011, according to Stephen Kendrick, the film's co-writer and producer.

Artists performing at the Monday, Sept. 13, evening banquet include Audrey Assad, Jars of Clay, Matthew West, Jason Crabb, Andy Andrews, as well as comedian Kenn Kington, Munce officials said. The keynote speaker for the banquet will be New York Times best-selling author Joel C. Rosenberg.

Munce emphasizes order-writing at CPE by motivating retailers with a reimbursement program that helps to offset travel, food and hotel expenses, based on reaching order-writing goals. Munce serves nearly 500 stores nationwide.
