destination: valley of the sun
After many years of doing the BTC conference in northern Arizona, this year attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy the "dry heat of the world-famous Valley of the Sun. The Phoenix area is known for its big, blue skies, beautiful desert mountains, lakes, and flora, and the many fun activities to enjoy both outdoors and inside.
Even though BTC was started by Grace Covenant Church and has been organized by people in this congregation since it’s inception in 2007, we are excited to finally be hosting BTC at GCC for the first time this year.
Rooms at a nearby hotel have been reserved for attendees traveling from out of town, and most meals will be provided by GCC members at the church. Likewise, activities will be planned and led by GCC members for attendees who are interested in participating. (Stay tuned for more info on activities and excursions!)
BTC 2019’s theme is simply, “The Love of Christ for His Church.” This year’s theme will focus on God’s eternal love for his covenant people as demonstrated through Christ and his loving relationship to his sheep.
