Providing Global Resources

Drawing from the experiences and expertise of Baptist leaders around the world, the Baptist World Alliance hosts a variety of webinars and workshops throughout the year to encourage and equip our members. Browse below to see the upcoming webinar schedule or to view past webinars.

    Moving Beyond the Pandemic Workshop

    How can the church serve faithfully in its context and community in 2022?

    Many are slipping back into extreme poverty, national governments are weakening because of political and social strife, and economies are struggling as markets are continually disrupted. Some church leaders are recognizing that, in this context, their ministry hasn’t stopped. It is actually just beginning. So how can the church and development organizations begin to build back and build up in a world that is discovering new norms and ways of being? Join us to hear from a global community development strategist, an investment specialist, and a practitioner.

    Holistic Mission Guide Webinar Series

    In the months since the release of the Baptist World Alliance Holistic Mission Guide, we have been encouraged by the positive response from Baptists around the world. As the world continues to face challenges, it is critical for us to continue learning, growing, and serving together. With that in mind, the BWA Commission on Mission is offering a 3-part webinar series designed to explore and dialogue about the concepts found within the Mission Guide.

    Holistic Mission Webinar Series: Part Three
    March 22, 2022 3:00 pm
    Redux Presentation: March 31, 5:30pm BST (United Kingdom)

    The third webinar in the series will guide church leaders and grass root church members through the theme of “Suffering.” The first presentation will be on “Theology of Discipleship: Jesus’ Discipleship Model of Suffering and Sacrifice” by Israel Oluwole Olofinjana (Nigeria) and the second will be by Dr. Wati Longchar (Nagaland, India) on “The Power of Last Words.” A story entitled “From Relapse to Church” written by Cristina Arcidiacono (Italy) will be narrated.

    Christian Unity: What Difference Does It Make?

    In John’s Gospel, Jesus links the unity of the church to its mission: to make Christ known to the whole world
    (John 17:21). In this webinar facilitated by the BWA Commission on Baptist Doctrine and Christian Unity, Baptist leaders from around the world address the challenges and benefits of engaging with other Christian traditions. 

    Taller de salvaguardia

    En mayo, BFAD impartió un taller sobre salvaguardia en el que se abordó qué es la salvaguardia y por qué es importante para las organizaciones. Con un enfoque especial en los contextos religiosos y transculturales, Mel Harwin (Oficial de Salvaguardia de Transform Aid International) cubre las normas internacionales de salvaguardia, los riesgos y las responsabilidades. La sesión también presenta estudios de casos de socios ministeriales de todo el mundo sobre sus viajes de salvaguardia.

    In response to COVID-19, BFAD has hosted a webinar series featuring leadership experts on various topics. To watch the webinar series focused on psychosocial support and wellbeing, click below.
