BCMB Camps
BCMB Camps

BCMB partners with the BCMB Bible Camp Society to develop leaders in the camp ministry setting. We invest in leadership training for camp staff and volunteers. For some of these individuals, camp ministry is a stepping stone to various other leadership roles they may embrace in the future, and we are passionate about being a part of the development of skills and experience for some of our future leaders.

PASTORAL STUDY DAYS

Every year, preceding our annual Convention, BCMB offers our pastors the option to attend a Pastor’s Study Day. This afternoon event features one or more keynote speakers who build into our pastors through a variety of topics relevant to ministry and thematically related to the focus of our Convention for the year.

Shepherding Plan
Shepherding Plan

The Conference Minister and the Associate Conference Minister have launched a Shepherding Plan which allows them to create intentional, direct contact with each of our lead pastors over the course of the year. This plan helps both the pastors and the conference to be in communication and to create more personal relationships. Development and shepherding opportunities often arise as a result of these interactions.
