On behalf of the BBTC Leaders’ Retreat organising team, we welcome you to join us! It has been 4 years since our last Retreat, and we invite body life and ministry leaders, your spouses and children to join us as we accomplish God’s purpose, through His Power and in His Presence.
As we align towards our mission to share Christ as we mature in Him, let us be faithful to serve as anointed leaders with integrity of heart and skilful hands (Psalm 78:72)!

Afternoon Program Tracks
There will be a selection of program tracks in the afternoon sessions on 14 & 15 March.
Please indicate your interest in any of the proposed topics (you can select more than 1). Finalised sessions will be confirmed at a later date.
A special children’s programme has been specially arranged for our leaders’ children in the Pre-Primary (N1-K2) and Primary (P1-6) age groups, led by experienced, engaging and energetic Children’s Minister David Leong.
David Leong has re-arranged his teaching schedule at Biblical Graduate School of Theology to serve our leaders and their families at this retreat. David is a much sought-after itinerant Children & Families Educator. He has some 30 years of experience in ministering to children, young people, parents and teachers both in the Christian as well as non-Christian communities. David Leong who has a Master of Christian Studies (M.C.S.) degree from Regent College, Vancouver, Canada, is an engaging, animated, lively and humorous instructor. The Lord has used him to equip many children’s ministry teachers in Australia, Brunei, Cambodia, China, England, Ethiopia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia (East & West), Mongolia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Timor Leste and Vietnam. He and his wife, Cynthia, who was a church-based kindergarten principal for 12 years, have three lovely adult children – Ivan, Alyssa and Dorlisa.
