The Baptist International Conference on Theological Education (BICTE) is held once each quinquennium with a focus on drawing together Baptist theologians and theological educators around a specified theme.

This time together will include impactful worship, teaching, and networking, so mark your calendars and make plans to join us for BICTE 2024 and then stay on to experience the 2024 BWA Annual Gathering.

The convening of the conference of theologians, theological educators, seminary professors, pastors, advocates for peace among others is timely, considering the current climate of war, conflicts, adversity, and militarism.
