On September 20th, 2014, the ABCCONN Historical Committee hosted an open house of the historical archives. The archives, housed at the Central Baptist Church of Hartford, tell the story not only of ABCCONN, but of many of ABCCONN's churches. Thanks to the Historical Committee which put in countless hours of work to organize historical materials and prepare them for viewing.

Since 1952 with the support of American Baptist Women, the Special Interest Missionaries (SIM) Program has strived to personalize American Baptist mission, acquaint congregations with missionaries and their ministries; and cultivate prayer and financial support for mission work in the United States and other countries.
ABCCONN's Special Interest Missionaries are listed below. When possible, these missionaries will be available to speak at events within our region. To get to know more about them, visit the American Baptist Home Mission Society and International Ministries. Journals and newsletters from the missionaries are available on these websites. Our hope is that you can share these journals with everyone in your congregation, so your church as a whole can pray for the missionaries, send messages of encouragement and, if you feel led, support them financially.
