Bi-District Training Day will take place on January 15, 2022.
The event will be Online Only!
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
This year we are offering two different ticket types.
Day-Of Pass: For $30 you can purchase a Day-Of Pass. This will allow you to participate in all 3 of the live webinar sessions with our Keynote Speaker and will give you access to all other BDTD content for 24 hours.
All-Access Pass: For $50 you can purchase an All-Access Pass. This will allow you to participate in all 3 of the live webinar sessions with our Keynote Speaker and will give you access to all other BDTD content until July 15, 2022.
HOW MANY WORKSHOPS SHOULD I CHOOSE?
You can choose as many workshops as you want. There is no limit to the number of workshops you select. If you want access to EVERYTHING you will want to be sure to select them all. If you only want to participate in the live sessions with Michael Beck, you can simply select his three workshops. But, and this is really important, if you want to receive the link to participate in a workshop, you MUST select it from the ‘choose your workshops’ screen. For help with registration, watch this video.
DO I HAVE TO PARTICIPATE ON JAN. 15?
If you want to participate in the live keynote presentation and the two additional live sessions with Michael Beck, or you want to participate in a Zoom Lunchtime Conversation, then YES you have to participate on January 15. If you want access to all content for an extended period of time, you will want to choose the All-Access Pass on the next screen. Then you can view the workshops whenever you’d like until July.
BUT I’M BUSY ON SATURDAY, WHY SHOULD I REGISTER?
Those with the All-Access Pass will have access to ALL of the content for 6 MONTHS–until July 16, 2022.
Michael Beck’s 3 live sessions will be available as replays by Sunday Morning, so those with the Day Of Pass who are unable to attend live WILL have access to those recorded sessions on Sunday. All-Access Pass holders will have access to his recorded sessions for the entire 6-month period.
CAN I REGISTER MORE THAN ONE PERSON AT A TIME?
Because the experience is so customizable using this virtual platform, each ticket must be purchased individually. Every ticket is linked to a specific email address and each ticket corresponds to the ‘schedule’ (the list of workshops) as selected by the purchaser and that person’s unique ID. The system will not take team registrations.
ARE STUDENT DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE?
If you are a high school, college or seminary student contact us for details.

HOW WILL I NETWORK WITH AND MEET OR TALK TO OTHER PARTICIPANTS?
Michael Beck’s three sessions will be live via Zoom webinar. You will be able to interact with the speaker and others via the Chat and Q&A functions during those sessions.
We are also offering five Zoom Lunch Sessions where attendees can gather via Zoom Meeting in order to see each other, talk to one another, and have conversation around a particular topic.
To participate in a Zoom Lunch Session this year, you need to select it when you choose your workshops during the registration process.
Each Zoom lunch session will cover a different topic and you will only be able to attend one Zoom Lunch Session as they run concurrently from 11:45 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Zoom Lunch Session Topics:
- Kids Ministry
- Youth Ministry
- Outreach and Service
- Church Growth in a Diverse World
- Exploring Pathways for Spiritual Formation
HOW DO I GET TO MY VIRTUAL WORKSHOPS?
Once you have completed your ticket purchase you will be sent an email confirmation receipt and a workshop schedule. That schedule will include links to each workshop you chose during the registration process. You will also be able to access the content on January 15 by visiting the same website you use to register and using the menu links and navigation tools that will be active on that website when the event begins.
If you want to know more about the virtual platform we are using and how to navigate the website, watch this video.
You can find your personal schedule at any time (once you have registered) at this link: https://bdtd2022.heysummit.com/attendee/schedule
If you have not completed registration, that link will not work correctly for you.
IS CEU CREDIT BEING OFFERED?
Those who attend all three live sessions with Michael Beck (Keynote at 9 and then workshops at 10:15 and 12:45) AND read his book: “Contextual Intelligence – Unlocking the Ancient Secret to Mission on the Front Lines” will qualify for .5 CEU credit.
