Sharing the Good News of Jesus with New Jersey and Beyond
It is with a mixture of profound sadness, deep appreciation for the fourteen years I have had the privilege of serving as ABCNJ's Executive Minister and Senior Regional Pastor, and in anticipation of God's call upon my future, that I tender my resignation, effective May 31, 2017, in order to begin my service as the General Secretary of ABCUSA on June 1, 2017. Please forgive the brief time for transition, which is necessitated by the upcoming ABCUSA Biennial Mission Summit and other factors.
Mark your calendars and sort out your transportation. This Wednesday begins the three week course "The Shape of Our Family" at Central Baptist Palmyra. Sessions will run from 7 PM – 8:30 PM.
Saturday night Central Baptist Palmyra held its third annual Chili Cook Off in support of Baptist Camp Lebanon's “Cedars of Lebanon 2020” campaign.
For the past fourteen years, it has been my honor to serve as the Executive Minister and Senior Regional Pastor of the American Baptist Churches of New Jersey. I appreciate all of the invitations you have extended to me to preach, teach, counsel, guide and encourage God’s people throughout our state and beyond! You have supported my ministry in every way. And together our region has accomplished a great deal for the Kingdom of God. We are indeed a healthy and faithful family of churches and pastors, whose impact extends throughout the globe. I have also been privileged to be surrounded by a ministry team that is second to none.
On May 13 Central Baptist of Riverton-Palmyra will be hosting their Third Annual Chili Cook Off to support Cedars of Lebanon 2020. This year two of ABCNJ's finest, Rev. Randy Van Osten of First Baptist Church Pitman and Rev. Chaz Hutchison of Scotch Plains Baptist Church, will be contributing chili to enter the competition. Come out to support a great cause and some of ABCNJ's finest cooks at the same time!
Come out and join the ABCNJ Regional Ministry team as it leads an exploration of our American Baptist family.
The Camp Lebanon Golf Classic returns to Gambler Ridge Golf Club! Gambler Ridge Golf Club prides itself in being a “must play” course in Central New Jersey. This par 71 course is a challenge for experienced players, but is laid out so beautifully even novice players will relax and enjoy playing it. Come join fellow golfers from all over ABCNJ and help support Camp Lebanon!
Hurricane Sandy devastated New Jersey when it hit the East Coast in October 2012. A joint effort of ABHMS and American Baptist Churches of New Jersey, “Coming Together for New Jersey…Rebuild, Renew and Restore” provides another mission opportunity to serve. Join in hands-on efforts to rebuild homes, communities and lives, while encouraging and supporting those in need and worshiping with ABCNJ congregations. Neither construction skills nor training is required.
