BCM International is a global Bible-Centered Ministry dedicated to making disciples of all age groups for the Lord Jesus Christ through evangelism, teaching and training so that churches are established and The Church strengthened. We have three core ministry focuses: Children’s Ministries, Church Development, and Leader & Teacher Training.
The 4-14 Window is defined as that window of opportunity between the ages of four to fourteen when more than 85% of Christians make their decision to follow Christ. With more than 2 billion children falling into this category and almost half the world’s population under 21, BCM International has made this strategic 4-14 Window the central focus of its ministry since beginning as the Bible Club Movement in 1936. All around the world BCM is committed to partnering with local churches to reach children for Christ and disciple them in God’s Word.
In order to introduce the lost to Christ and nurture new believers, BCM remains focused on partnering with established churches for the cause of world evangelization. We also seek to plant Bible-believing churches in neighborhoods where none exist, whether in large cities or remote villages. The objective is to ensure that they are culturally relevant and have a vision to reach their own community and beyond.
Through Bible institutes, regional and local teacher training and church leadership courses, seminars, college and seminary instruction, small group Bible studies, and hands-on practical ministry opportunities, BCM missionaries are training a new generation of Christian leaders around the world. BCM’s Bible curricula Footsteps of Faith and Tiny Steps of Faith and other publications, along with their teacher training course, In Step with the Master Teacher, now available in more than 25 languages, provide Bible-centered and culturally-appropriate resources for local church leadership to disciple and train their membership and evangelize their community for Christ.
From the wild beauty of Ireland’s seashore to the lush tropics of India, Peru or the Caribbean, from the mountains and rural farmlands of North America to a secluded European retreat, BCM Christian camping programs now reach over 25,000 children each year in 25 different countries.
BCM’s Genesis-to-Revelation curricula Footsteps of Faith and Tiny Steps of Faith provide Bible-centered and culturally-appropriate resources for local church leadership to disciple and train their membership and evangelize their community for Christ.
BCM Short-Term Ministry opportunities are used as a tool for teaching and training individuals for a lifetime of service, whether serving the local church or an unknown people group. We have several types of ministry opportunities: camp staff (for international and USA camps), ESL/cultural exchange, street ministry, 5-day Bible Clubs, puppeteering, Bible teacher’s street evangelism, construction work, missionary support staff, and much more. Internships are also available.
