Church registration will remain open until February 6, 2015. At that time, individual registration will open and individuals will register at the reduced fee of $40, or at a regular fee of $165 if their church has not registered.
“In response to many requests, we are very pleased to be able to offer church registration over a year before Mission Summit 2015. Churches will be able to respond as they are able with sufficient time later for individual registration. The Planning Team is doing great work for a memorable gathering. Please plan now to be a part of this event,” said Susan Gillies, chair of the Mission Summit Planning Team.
“American Baptists are mindful that God is calling them on a journey of faithfulness and witness,” said Rev. Don Ng, president of American Baptist Churches USA. “Every two years, we gather to praise God for vision, gather around tables to discern God’s direction, and covenant together to do the work of the Lord in the world. The 2015 Biennial Mission Summit, June 26-28 in Overland Park, Kansas, is the place for you to Share the Journey (Psalm 84:5)! You have heard how wonderful 2013 was, now is your opportunity to begin planning to join your sisters and brothers on God’s journey with us in 2015.”
“Every two years, we come together to reminisce, to make new friends, to network with colleagues, and to listen to God’s leading. Your voices and presence are valued and welcomed to Share the Journey in 2015! I hope to see you and meet you there!” said Ng.

For Mission Summit 2015, churches are invited to register, lowering the fees for individuals from registered churches. Church registration for Mission Summit 2015 will be based on average worship attendance for each church, as follows:

3. Churches of 201-500 – $550
4. Churches of more than 500 – $715
There will once again be an opportunity for churches to register as Church Boosters, churches that become major sponsors of the Mission Summit through a gift of $1,000, will be automatically registered. We are grateful to many of our leading churches who contribute in this way.
Additionally, like churches, Region Offices are invited to register at the rate of $220, so that region staff members can register at the reduced individual rate of $40. There is also an opportunity for Regional Boosters with a gift of $1,000, which includes recognition and Region registration benefits. Learn more at www.americanbaptists2015.com.
