Learn about our “Ministry Story Opportunity” highlighted in Spring 2015! Share your story with us at

Transformed by the SpiritTransformed by the Spirit engages local congregations across the denomination in a journey of identifying the significant challenges that face our churches, our regions, and our national bodies in today’s culture, and wrestling with the changes that will be required of all American Baptists if we are to seize opportunities to serve as the hands and feet of Christ. More Information

The question we are asking in this initiative is: “What challenges are we facing, for which we do not presently have an answer, but which must be addressed if we are to live into the future God has for us?”
