BCA Fall Forum - Sept. 13, 2019
Our Sixth Annual Fall Forum
Representing communications teams from across the SBC, presenters will talk about a wide range of topics. The format of the forum will be fast-paced, with brief presentations followed by short times of discussion. From life-altering, unexpected moments, to projects that reshaped one's future, topics will come from the presenter's own life and work experiences.
We’re grateful to Baptist Press, Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, Tennessee Baptist Mission Board, and Union University for sponsoring our event. And a special thank you to LifeWay Christian Resources for providing the studio and technical support for the 2019 BCA Fall Forum.

Topic: "If Not, Then..."
The third chapter of Daniel provides a powerful example of God's providence in difficult situations, and Royce DeGrie, senior graphic designer with the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board, can relate to it very personally.
