This the BWCUMC channel that contains all the videos created by The Baltimore-Washington Annual Conference for its online church resource area: The BWC Ministry Toolbox. This is designed for church leaders—lay and clergy—who seek to improve their ministry.
Go to and search for the tool you need right now to build, tear-down or repair in the areas of Spiritual Leader Formation, Congregational Formation, Community Transformation or Administration & Operation. Additionally you may find inspiration in the Sermon Studio and take an e-Course or two.
Eventually—with your help—it will contain good answers to all of your ministry questions in a fully searchable format.
