Seminars

The Baptist World Congress seminars create an opportunity for participants to benefit from presentations on a wide range of theological, missiological, ecclesiological, ecological, and practical issues.

To ensure full representation of the global Baptist family, the slate of presenters reflects sessions from leaders within each of the six BWA regions (eleven countries) as well as an intentional mix of generations and gender.

Each session includes a live Q&A segment with the presenter unless noted.
