MISSIONAL COMMUNITY LEADER TRAINING

Our mission at BCC is to bring the wholeness of Jesus to a broken world. Here at BCC, we are convinced this mission is best pursued in community --in extended families that, through the everyday rhythms of life, can learn to listen to God and respond by loving generously. Do you have previous experience leading groups? Do you have a desire help others know God and love generously? Leading missional communities takes availability, commitment, vision, and sacrifice, BUT it’s worth it. Please prayerfully consider attending our six week training to get equipped to be a MC leader here at BCC
