RELEASE 2017

BCM's Regional Leadership Conference 

WHEN: Saturday, February 4, 2017, 10am - 6pm
WHERE: Central Presbyterian Church - Towson, MD
COST: $40

As a college student, sometimes it can feel like you don’t have much, but God has entrusted His people with more than we often realize.  As a follower of Christ, it is your privilege to be a witness for Him, and He has equipped and empowered you for ministry on your campus.

And as students of “African Descent”—whether African-American, Afro-Caribbean, African or multi-racial—God can use your background and experiences to work through you in powerful ways. Your leadership is all the more crucial given the challenges facing our communities both nationally and globally.

In February, gather with Black Christian students across the Mid-Atlantic Region, seeking to grow as leaders.  Our prayer is that God grows you as leader—to advance his kingdom on campus and beyond. Please join us!
