BWA Horizons

Empowering Today's Youth & Children Leaders

Crafted to Encourage, Equip, and Empower

Originating from a commissioned research study conducted by Jeff Carter in 2003 through the European Baptist Federation, this program was born out of a passion to meet the specific training needs identified in the study.

Initially available in English, Arabic, and Russian, Horizons has evolved into a global force, now offered in 14 different languages (with more in development).
