Young People’s Ministry

Are you interested in or passionate about the future of Young People’s Ministry within the BWC?  Now is the time to let your voice be heard!  As we realign our ministries for young people, we are seeking feedback and input from our local churches and young people themselves.  We are collecting data through a survey that will be open until July 15 and inviting people to register and participate in one of three focus groups during the first week of September.  The data collected will be used to create a strategic plan for Young People’s Ministry within the BWC.  For questions or additional information, please contact Cheryl Cook
