This BCM West Coast Conference is an in-person gathering for all Black students on the West Coast. We will spend a weekend together looking at the Gospel of Mark to see what Jesus has to say about the F-Words (Family, Fishing, Following) and how they are relevant to us today. Expect to see these "F-words" in action through great worship, making new friends, and walking away with your soul refreshed.
Reserve your spot today with a deposit of $50.
You can check into your room anytime after 4:00pm. Then grab dinner on your own before we begin at 7:00pm.
Lunch will be on your own.
