Sharing the Good News of Jesus with New Jersey and Beyond
We recently finished the first few weeks of the summer season 2017. This year, our theme of “Step Out of the Boat” is designed to challenge campers and staffers to step out in faith and share the good news of Jesus Christ.
The 2017 American Baptist Churches, USA Biennial Mission Summit gathered Portland, Oregon gathered under the theme, "Connect." It concluded Sunday evening with the Lord’s Supper. "Connect" stood on a three-legged stool of sub-themes – “Connected to Christ," "Connected to Each Other," and "Connected in Joy.”
As I conclude my first day serving on the ABCNJ regional team, I cannot help but note how privileged I feel to be called to this ministry. I feel especially blessed to be spending day one with our larger American Baptist Church as we gather in Portland Oregon for the Biennial Mission Summit.
During Biennial's openning worship on Friday Dr. Spitzer was officially introduced to our ABCUSA family as the General Secretary of the denomination.
ABCNJ is currently seeking applications for a region accountant. The American Baptist Churches of New Jersey (ABCNJ), founded in 1830 under its original name of the New Jersey Baptist Convention, has more than 285 member churches and approximately 70,000 members.
