Invite BJC staff to guest preach

Looking to address what the Bible teaches us about religious freedom during your worship service? We love visiting Baptist and other Christian churches to preach the Gospel, which we believe calls us to defend faith freedom for all. 

The following BJC staff are available to visit your church. You will find a collection of sermons below. They are also prepared to lead small group or church-wide discussions on religious liberty and Christian nationalism in addition to preaching.

If you’re interested in having one of these staff members guest preach, please contact Anatalie Rocher at [email protected]
