“The Board of Cooperative Ministries (BCM) engages and supports congregations and RCCs in their ministries as together we grow in faith, love and hope, following Jesus in serving the world.”
We serve individuals, families, classes and small groups, congregations, and RCCs, as well as pastors, lay leaders, church educators and other professional staff. We offer:
- Coaching, consulting, and training in leadership & board development, technology and social media, asset mapping, stewardship, faith formation, Moravian heritage/theology and much more;
- A place for social ministry groups to convene and take action in areas like multicultural ministries, poverty, environmental stewardship, and others;
- Hands-on youth, college and young adult ministry support and programming; and
- Insightful books, videos, and easy-to-use curriculum at our Resource Center.
