BICTE Conference Resources 

BICTE 2019 facilitated a variety of conversation around this year’s theme. The BWA recognizes that there are differing theological convictions and perspectives and sought through the presenters, responders, and breakout session leaders to give intentional expression to the diversity of theological convictions. Papers and presentations, orally and printed, are the perspective of the presenter alone and do not necessarily reflect the position of the BWA.
