BWA Horizons

Empowering Today's Youth & Children Leaders

Crafted to Encourage, Equip, and Empower

Inspired by the Rev. Dr. Jeff Carter’s pioneering 2003 research for the European Baptist Federation across 54 nations in Europe, Central Asia, and the Middle East, Horizons was established to address the specific training needs of hundreds of youth and children’s ministry leaders. Initially offering courses in English, this initiative has grown over the past 20 years into a global force within local churches worldwide.

Horizons is now available in over a dozen languages, with more in development. The program offers dynamic online training and engaging live seminars, all conducted by locally trained mentors. These mentors are experienced ministry leaders who bring a wealth of local knowledge and context to enrich the learning experience.

Reaching Leaders in over 50 Countries and 14 Languages

Horizons offers two streams of training: one for youth ministry and another for children’s ministry. The vast majority of leaders in these ministries worldwide are volunteers. This program is specifically designed to provide training that combines practical and theoretical frameworks, grounded in solid biblical principles and theologically sound reflection.

Horizons aims to equip, enable, and encourage strong, reflective leadership capable of engaging with the ever-changing and challenging world that youth encounter. Ultimately, our mission is to make disciples of not only all nations but all generations as well!
