Youth Summit

We’re excited to announce our first ever Youth Summit! Come participate as we kick off this annual event for youth leaders. Our special guest will be Shane Pruitt, who serves as the National Next Gen Evangelism Director with the North American Mission Board (NAMB).

During this summit you’ll connect with youth leaders across our convention and gain wisdom, insight, and inspiration as the BCM/D looks toward a new initiative focused on students ages 12-17. Join us to share ideas and help strategize the discipleship of tomorrow’s church!
