Jesus "Gave some to be . . . pastors and teachers for the equipping of the saints" (Eph. 4:11-12). A primary responsibility of the church is to equip people for ministry. The need today is great for this ministry. Pastors can not do it all.

BBM is committed to serving the church and pastors through several ministries that help the pastor to equip people for ministry. Our primary ministries include:

PLACE workshops - helping people to find where they fit in ministry.

Team Building workshops and consultations - helping to train people for leadership in ministry. (see related article)

3-D Leadership workshops - helping leaders and boards understand the differing roles for biblically effective and functional ministry. (see related article)

Pastoral Coaching - relationships that challenge, encourage, and support pastors to reach their potential. (see related article)

Church Consultations - helping church transition into effective ministries.

Ministers of Mercy is a new workshop being offered through the ministries of BBM. This workshop will help train your deacons as servant leaders to meet the needs of your congregation and reach out to your community. Dr. MacKenzie will be the leader of this workshop. (see related article)

Pastoral Transitions - guiding churches through pastoral changes.
Developmental Resources are provided to meet a variety of leadership and developmental needs of the church.

All believers who want to build their lives on God's Purposes

The seminar/workshop and consultation is scheduled to meet the needs of the individual church. Usually a preliminary informational session is held with the search committee and/or board of the church.
