Welcome to BCA!
Baptist Communicators Association (and this website) exists to help you - the Southern Baptist communicators of the world - to enhance your professional knowledge and to serve as a networking tool among your peers.
BCA is a professional organization of communicators who serve in editorial, public relations, electronic media, photography, management, marketing and graphic design positions principally within Baptist agencies and institutions. (If this is you, and you're not a member, please check out the "Membership" page.) In BCA, we work together to inspire, inform and educate our more than 250 members across the United States and around the world.
Browse through the site and read blogposts from friends and coworkers. Get information about our annual workshop, a rich opportunity for you to gain professional development and networking opportunities. Plan to enter your best work in the Wilmer C. Fields awards competition, and then engage in the on-site judging to hear the work reviewed firsthand.
