about the meeting

To ensure the safety of our staff and attendees, the 2020 BGAV Annual Meeting will be held online this year! Because of the nature of this year’s meeting and the fact that we cannot physically be together for voting and discussion, no formal business will be conducted. Therefore, churches do not need to elect messengers for this year’s meeting. All attendees will still be required to register in order to access video links for all meeting presentations and breakout sessions.

Our theme focus for this year is “Deep Roots, Green Shoots” based on Isaiah 43:19:

“See, I am doing a new thing!
 Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.”
