- Supporting congregations, regions, and national organizations | We offer direct and indirect administration, services, and consultancy to our partners in support of the various forms of mission happening throughout the ABC.
- Creating Space for local and global issues | We provide opportunities for information sharing, focused action, and networking on important topics through committees, task forces, commissions, and ministry teams, always with a commitment to apply a denomination-wide lens.
