ADVANCING the Next Generation
Advancing Children’s Ministry
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14.
As we answer the Advancing the Kingdom call, we are also fulfilling Christs’ request. Our role as pastors is to create environments for children to connect with God. These environments need to be engaging and cater to different ages. Advancing the Kingdom means to continue to provide spaces and environments that children can encounter a God who changes everything. The environments and spaces here at BP Church are limited and some of them
completely ineffective. The nursery, preschool, and children’s spaces are small and cramped for the current population of our church. The building is restricting growth.
A new building will allow us as a church to create spaces where growth can be achieved and where so many more children and their families will encounter Christ!”

Advancing Youth Ministry
“Transit SM is the student ministry of BP Church. We exist to point students to Jesus and help them actively seek the kingdom of God in their own lives. The Advancing the Kingdom campaign connects with us in many ways such as our outreach program, The YDC, our Friday Night program and Youth Church. These programs help us connect more students to the body of Christ from the surrounding communities in really effective ways and we look forward to the possibilities that this campaign provides.
We’re very excited about the possibilities that the new building creates for us as a ministry. We really believe that the location, as well as the facility itself will help us extend our reach into North Calgary.
As we look back on all that God has done through this ministry in the buildings that we’ve operated in, we’re thankful for the powerful moments in each space. As we look to the future, we’re full of anticipation and excitement about the powerful moments that students will have in the new building.”
