FAQ

What’s different this year from last year?

There are three differences this year as far as we can tell:

IMPORTANT: All registrations require a reference letter from a pastor to be emailed/mailed in for the registration to process.

The cost is lower for everyone, the catch is there is no private rooms available for anyone. Couples do have an option to be in a separate room together, but please email office@bgc.ca to ensure there are still rooms available.

The venue is where we held the 2017 Celebration/AGM, Camp Nakamun in Alberta.

Who’s 20/20 for?

The 2020 Summit is for young adult leaders from all across the Baptist General Conference of Canada (BGCC) denomination.  These are people from 18-34 who demonstrate a passion for Christ and a desire to serve Him.  These leaders are invited to participate in the Summit by the leadership of their local church as a way of affirming the direction God is already taking them.

Who puts this on?

The Baptist General Conference of Canada (BGCC) is a movement of Canadian Churches from Vancouver Island to Nova Scotia. The BGCC is Baptistic in theology and gentle in spirit. It is the role of the national office to cast a courageous vision to see God’s work done across our nation. (http://bgc.ca/)

The 2020 Summit is also sponsored by the Canadian Baptist Seminary, a founding member of the Associated Canadian Theological Seminaries (ACTS) located on the campus of Trinity Western University in Langley, British Columbia. http://www.canadianbaptistseminary.com/
