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?

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/)
