Global Ministry Conference set to focus on urban impact

A special three-day focus on urban ministries will highlight this year's Global Ministry Conference at BBC.

"Brilla: Ilumina La Ciudad" is the theme for the February 12-14, 2014 event on campus. Spanish for "Shine: Light Up the City," the conference will explore ministries in urban settings. The city presents many exciting opportunities and unique challenges. Whether in America or overseas, millions of people are in need of the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ in their cities.

See a list of speakers and times here.

BBC&SRegular classes are not held during this special time. The focus of conferences in future years will be on varied global ministries (2015), global church planting (2016), and efforts in Third World and developing countries (2017).
