Learn

Never stop growing.

It’s never too late to start learning about what God is doing
and how you can be a part of it.

Whether you’re working, studying or still in school, God’s world offers so many opportunities to learn and grow in your faith and outreach. From RE class to retirement, you can learn from BMS World Mission’s work over four continents and two centuries, partnering with some of the brightest minds and best communicators in outreach, mission education, theology, philosophy and more.

From our training courses in Birmingham to our events all over the country and our print and online resources, you’ll find something to challenge, inspire and inform you in the list below.
