Ministry Story Opportunity: Video and Written Stories Submitted 2015

In 2015, we invited American Baptists from across the country to share their Ministry Stories with the American Baptist Family and with the world! Grants totaling $5,000 were awarded to the top stories, with funding received designated to go right back to the recipient’s ministry. These ministries were celebrated at the Biennial Mission Summit in Kansas City in June 2015. This is a part of the Transformed by the Spirit initiative. Want to share your story?  Written and Video submissions are invited at:
