Emerging Leaders

Emerging Leaders have an opportunity to take part in a special pre-Congress Summit being held July 7-8, 2025.

Are you under 35? Are you taking a lead in your church and wanting to expand your skills and understanding of leadership in God’s Kingdom? Is God calling you to take on more responsibility for him?
The Emerging Leaders Summit will be the ideal place for you to be.
Come and meet with other emerging leaders from across the globe – worship together, learn from and encourage each other, build lifelong friendships and cohorts that could continue long beyond being together for a few days. Sharpen your leadership and personal skills.
After the Summit, stay for the Baptist World Congress at no extra cost. Hear the prophetic voices of those under 35 in workshops and seminars, Bible studies and plenary sessions, as well as other elements of the Congress program.
Opportunities will be provided for you to continue to connect beyond the initial Summit program. Maybe God will guide you to be a part of the next BWA Emerging Leaders Network – an opportunity to stay connected with an international group of emerging leaders to continue gathering and growing your skills for future ministry.
