(Ministerial Enrichment Weekend)


In consideration of the challenges and restrictions imposed by the Covid pandemic in Pennsylvania and elsewhere and of the feedback of the local steering committee, the Board of Executors regretfully announces that 2021 MEW at Ephrata, PA is cancelled.  This comes as a keen disappointment to all of us and to the hosting congregations.  We sincerely appreciate the planning and work already invested for this event, both by the speakers and by the hosts. 

Further word will be forthcoming regarding the possible future use of the program and regarding the business meeting and board meetings planned for January. 

Please keep your BMA leaders and fellow-pastors in prayer as we seek to be faithful and carry Christ's vision for the church!

January 28 - 31, 2021

Message from the Host:

We welcome you to Lancaster County (PA Dutch country) and to the 23rd annual BMA Ministerial Enrichment Weekend. We look forward to serving you this weekend, and our desire is that you will leave spiritually refreshed and strengthened.

Everyone, both brothers and sisters, are welcome to attend all sessions of the 2020 BMA MEW. Two features especially for women are two Friday afternoon workshops and the Ladies' Session and Tea on Saturday afternoon at 2:00.

If you plan to attend, please register before January 14, 2021.

Sunday Morning Service

Due to Covid-19 concerns, available seating, and food service limitations, the Board of Executors is requesting all local BMA (and other) congregations wishing to join the Sunday AM service to take advantage of the “livestream.” The link will be provided to all BMA pastors and posted to this page prior to the event.

You are invited to the 23rd annual MEW! This weekend is not only for BMA leaders, but is also open to others who are interested in training and encouragement in the Lord's work.
