Developed as a resource for persons in active ministry, impact seminars facilitate meaningful dialogue on important theological and practical topics. 

2021 Seminar — The Basin and the Towel: Approaching Global Ministry Through Servanthood


Throughout his ministry, Jesus exemplified servant leadership. He clearly demonstrated this when he humbled himself to the position of the lowest servant and washed his disciples’ feet. BIC U.S. World Missions works to emulate this posture of servitude as we share the love of Jesus throughout the world.

In this seminar, World Missions staff and international BIC leaders will explore the many ways we interact with the global BIC Church, some of the challenges of cross-cultural ministry, and why this work is so vital.


  • Gain awareness of the need for and challenges of cross-cultural ministry
  • Learn more about the breadth of the global BIC Church
  • Discover opportunities to engage with the global BIC Church by partnering with World Missions


This is a free event, but registration is required at least one week before a seminar begins.
