International Ministries to Move to New Offices on February 2
VALLEY FORGE, PA (ABNS 1/31/18)—On February 2, 2018, the domestic personnel of International Ministries (IM) will be making a half-mile move to a new office space. IM will be open for ministry business on February 5.
Please make note of IM’s new mailing address and contact information, which will take effect on February 5:
1003 W. 9th Ave., Ste. A
King of Prussia, PA 19406-1210
If callers wishing to reach IM dial the American Baptist Churches USA (ABCUSA) receptionist at the toll-free number, 800-222-3872, they will be prompted to dial 4 to be connected with the IM receptionist. Note that the ABCUSA Office of the General Secretary and the other denominational partners will remain in the current office building until further notice.
After several months of organizing, archiving and packing, the IM domestic staff is looking forward to settling into its new space. Executive Director / CEO Sharon Koh expressed the sentiments of the IM staff, saying, “I am excited about our new location because it will be an efficient use of space, and it is well designed for collaborative work. It is an environment well suited for the home office staff to serve our global servants and supporters.”
IM began the search for a new office location last spring with a firm commitment to remain as close as possible to its denominational partners. After an extensive search, IM’s planning team identified a building in King of Prussia that is an excellent match for IM’s requirements.
“The IM Board of Directors sees God’s powerful hand at work in the availability and suitability of this building for our next chapter in God’s mission,” said the Rev. Dr. Reginald Mills, IM board president.
International Ministries, also known as the American Baptist Foreign Mission Society, works cross-culturally to invite people to become disciples of Jesus Christ and to proclaim, through both word and deed, God’s reign of justice, peace and abundant life for all creation.
American Baptist Churches USA is one of the most diverse Christian denominations today, with approximately 5,000 congregations comprised of 1.3 million members, across the United States and Puerto Rico, all engaged in God’s mission around the world.
