Campaign BCA
BCA's vision for the future calls for Jodo Shinshu Buddhism to stand forward as a major religious tradition in the United States—to be recognized by the general public and embraced by a multi-ethnic Sangha. In Spring 2003, the Buddhist Churches of America launched a capital development program to raise $30 million in new assets.
