2023 Annual Gathering & Mission Summit
July 2-9, 2023 | Stavanger, Norway
An Exciting Event Partnership
In 2023, the Baptist World Alliance is excited to collaborate with European Baptist Federation to offer an incredible global experience in Stavanger, Norway. From July 2-9, global Baptist leaders are invited to experience two dynamic events: (1) the 2023 Baptist World Alliance Annual Gathering and the (2) “SENT” Global Mission Summit.
2023 BWA Annual Gathering: July 2-4, 2023
During the Annual Gathering, Baptist leaders from across the globe will connect through worship, prayer, learning, relationship building, and shared ministry. We will also grow together as we engage in plenaries, Bible studies, regional ministry updates, and small group reflections developed by 14 BWA Commissions.
“SENT” Global Mission Summit: July 5-9, 2023
SENT 2023 is an opportunity for Baptists to gather together with a strategic focus on both the privilege and responsibility we share in God’s global mission. In our time together, we will share inspiring testimonies of what God is already doing through Baptist churches and unions to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ and how it is changing lives and transforming communities.
We will hear from gifted keynote speakers as well as insightful Bible study and seminar leaders, collectively listening for God’s voice in directing us in our mission for the future. We will accept the challenge of putting into practice all we have been learning about church and mission through the COVID-19 crisis.
Through inspiring worship, prayer times, and sharing meals together, we want to encourage and support one another, building our friendships across nations, cultures, and languages – expressing our solidarity in Jesus Christ who unites us all together.
NOTE: Registration and accommodation information for both events will be available soon.
