News! The Rev. Mike Michie took a call to parish ministry so BPG has brought the Rev. Lorenzo Lebrija in as conference keynoter and conversation facilitator. He is the founding director of the TryTank, the experimental Lab for church growth and innovation. Prior to launching TryTank, Lorenzo was the Chief Development Officer for the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles. Before entering seminary Lorenzo was president and CEO of Seraphic Fire & Firebird Chamber Orchestra, Miami’s professional choral and orchestral ensemble. He was also the Miami Program Director for the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation responsible for a substantial grant portfolio and the launch of the Knight Arts Challenge. Having been General Manager for RadioActiva Hispanic Radio, as well as Editor/Director of Operations for Miami’s Community Newspapers, Lorenzo has vast experience in media and marketing. He has been a frequent speaker at community events to groups on development, community involvement, the arts, business strategy, and marketing. Beyond the MDiv degree, he also has an MBA and a B.A. from Florida International University, has completed the full training at the Fundraising School at Indiana University, and is a graduate of Rice University’s Executive Education Program.
