BJC Fellows Program

Since 2015, The Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Freedom (BJC) has offered a Fellows Program, providing young professionals the opportunity to deepen their historical, theological and legal understanding of religious liberty and develop skills to advocate for the cause throughout their careers.

Ten BJC Fellows will be selected from diverse educational, professional and religious backgrounds to attend the BJC Fellows Seminar in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia, August 12-16, 2020. The intensive education program will equip the BJC Fellows for activism, utilizing Colonial Williamsburg’s educational resources in conjunction with BJC staff members and other scholars.

BJC Fellows must commit to being advocates for religious liberty in their communities. They will have projects to complete during the seminar as well as individual projects afterward.
Applicants must be between the ages of 25 and 40 years old. There is no cost to apply, and there are no religious requirements. The program covers most travel costs and all lodging and meals for the BJC Fellows.

Church Treasurer Training

Join us for the Church Treasurer workshop. Serving as a Church Treasurer is more than just signing checks. It is a trusted role where the Church Treasurer serves as a steward over the finances and resources that the Lord has entrusted in their care.

This workshop will cover establishing comprehensive financial procedures and practices (internal controls, separation of duties, etc.), counting and recording offerings, processing disbursements and deposits, financial reporting, budgeting, managing risk (insurances), and processing payroll and the required filings.
