The 2014 America for Christ offering is taken at this time of the year. The theme this year is Seeking Justice, responding to the mandate from Isaiah 1:17 "Learn to do good; seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan, plead for the widow." Two thirds of this offering remains with the American Baptist Home Mission Society,one third comes back to support our ABCCONN ministries.
Online resources are available at the ABC-USA website.
The Orientation to American Baptist Life is held every other year by ABCUSA to help bring seminarians and pastors new to ABC into the life of the denomination. Information sessions are held by the Board of International Ministries, American Baptist Home Mission Society, Office of the General Secretary, the Regional Ministers, and the Ministers and Missionaries Benefit Board so that participants can fully understand the vast ministries opportunities and offerings throughout the country and indeed the world. The participants are involved in very full days. This time there were Bible Study leaders and speakers such as Adam Bond, Molly Marshall, Elizabeth Conde Frazier and Kirk Byron Jones as well as evening worship experiences.
