We are grateful to be part of the American Baptist Churches of Pennsylvania and Delaware, a network of 281 local churches. We gather for mutual encouragement, and we also pool our resources to equip missionaries in America and around the globe. We regularly take volunteer mission trips as well.
One of our most long-standing relationships is in Haiti, where we serve the city of Grand Goave by constructing durable housing, visiting outlying areas to share the Gospel, and putting on Bible clubs for local children. ABCOPAD runs a quality lay-minister training academy (our Pastor is one of the instructors). We assist with pastor searches in our local congregations, help with conflict resolution, run educational workshops and webinars, and so much more.
All this is encapsulated in ABCOPAD's mission statement:
To build Healthy Partnerships with Churches, Pastoral Leaders, and the
wider ABC Family, to fulfill Christ's mission in our world.
