BGC Canada has coupled with The Clergy Care Network and Focus on the Family Canada to help provide guidance when life is challenging – and rejoice with you when things are going well.
The Clergy Care Network (CCN) is a ministry based out of Focus on the Family Canada. Recognizing that the needs and concerns that clergy families face are unique and require specialized care, the ministry of the CCN exists solely to provide support and encouragement to pastors and their families.
As a pastor of the BGCC, here are some of the resources available to you through the CCN:
How to Acces it:
