An Exciting Event Partnership

2023 Annual Gathering: July 2-5, 2023

During this incredible annual event, 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.
Sent 2023: Global Mission Summit, 2023 Annual Gathering

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.
