Advance Utah Vision Trip + Conference

Join us November 9th—11th, 2023

Discover how God can use you in Utah church planting with Biblical Ministries Worldwide!

Understanding the Need in Utah

Utah is the least evangelized state in America and the headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, popularly known as the LDS or Mormon Church. Only 2.2% of the population attends an Evangelical Church. Join us for the Advance Utah Vision Trip and explore how we could use you to help establish a healthy church for every community in Utah.

BMW is actively working with church planters, churches, and believers throughout the U.S. to establish 5 new church plants by 2027. We are also continuing to establish 8 existing church plants in Utah. Will you help us establish a healthy church for every community in Utah?
