Welcome Randy Tschetter!
Starting April 1, 2018, Randy Tschetter will begin serving as the director of the North American Baptist (NAB) Heritage Commission.

Upcoming Leadership Teleconference
Don’t miss out on the next Leadership Teleconference with one of our 2018 Triennial speakers, Dr. Barry Jones! This teleconference is an opportunity for pastors, leaders, and guests across the NAB to discuss Barry’s book, Dwell, in which Jones describes living a missional life from a place of deep connection with and dependence on God. Not only must we have a clear and compelling vision of the life we want to live, but we must also cultivate the spiritual disciplines necessary to live out our vision in the specific contexts of day-to-day life. We need a renewed vision of Christian spirituality that leads us to be conformed into the image of Christ who dwelt with us for us.
