ABC Ministry Story Opportunity Update

This spring’s Ministry Story Opportunity, which came out of the Transformed by the Spirit initiative, invited churches to share their ministry stories with the larger American Baptist family.  These stories were posted on the ABCUSA website, and also highlighted at the 2015 Biennial Mission Summit in Overland Park, Kansas, June 26-28, 2015.

This fall, we will be highlighting these ministry stories. We invite local American Baptist churches to submit their own ministry stories by emailing We hope you will share your ministry experiments/experiences with our ABCUSA family.
