What is BCBC Church Ministries Doing For You? 50+ MinistryMen’s MinistryWomen’s MinistryChildren’s MinistryYouth Ministry The BCBC Church Ministries Team is responsible to coordinate the joint BCBC church activities of Men's, Women's, Children's, Youth and 55+ ministries, to provide lay leadership training, information exchange and encouragement among the churches and to assist new ministries. Ministry Focuses We are available to help BCBC churches develop the following ministries: Youth Ministries - We are responsible for encouraging, promoting and reporting on Youth among BCBC churches. Women's Ministries - We are here to encourage, inform, and network Women's Ministry Teams in our BCBC churches. Men’s Ministries - Encouraging our churches to develop effective programs to help men to become fully devoted followers of Jesus. 50+ Ministries - We believe that an effective church ministers effectively to each age group in the congregation. We further believe that the seniors in the church are an important segment in each church, with much accumulated wisdom to share with each other and the rest of the church body. Children's Ministries - We seek to serve the BCBC churches as they work to develop effective ministries for the Children in their local church families. Other Ministries Broadway West Ministry Incentive Grant - In 1998 the BCBC Church Ministries Commission began receiving $5,000.00 annually from the sale of the assets of our Broadway West Baptist Church in Vancouver, which has enabled us to develop the Broadway West Incentive Grant Ministry. This grant is available to BCBC churches that do not have the financial resources to begin a new ministry they feel God is calling them to develop. Incentive Grant Program suspended for 2011 to 2017. Improving Your Serve Conference - Held each February this is a morning of Lay Leadership Training, the workshops cover a wide variety of training opportunities from 'Fine-tuning church boards for peak performance' to worship, children's ministries, 'igniting teens for God's Heart Desires', marketing and promoting your ministry, multi media and much more.
