I am using the following query to grab a column in my db and convert the date.  I would like the full month to display if possible.  Currently, what I have is only displaying three characters in the month along with the day and year.  Any help would be appreciated

 SELECT CONVERT(VARCHAR(12), nextBillingDate_c, 107) AS [Month DD, YYYY]
  FROM members
