This year the BHSS National Conference starts with lunch on 23 October (Friday) and ends up by 4 p.m. on 25 October (Sunday). Main speaker will be Nikola Galevski (Gen Sec of Exodus Macedonia). He will speak on the Letter to the Galatians. There will be tracks on ‘Holiness’, ‘What the Full Good News Include’, ‘Choices We Make in a Pluralist World’, and ‘Ethnic/Racial Reconciliation’. Other than that, there will be small groups, a seminar on ‘What Is a Student Movement’, cultural evening, sports, etc. There will be groups of students from both Exodus Macedonia and BSKSh Albania, and possibly, other IFES movements.
