AMERICAN BAPTISTS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN
PEOPLE OF MISSION
American Baptists have always been a people of mission; mission is in our DNA. Our United Mission (UM) contributions give concrete expression to this impulse and help us to be the hands and feet of Christ – from the local congregation to all parts of the world.
It is through UM, our one family offering, that each giver is able to participate in the total ministry of our American Baptist family.
These gifts are distributed on a percentage basis according to the covenant agreement between Region organizations, International Ministries, National Ministries, Ministers & Missionaries Benefit Board, the Office of the General Secretary, and career development centers.
These gifts undergird every aspect of our life together as American Baptists, supporting the cutting-edge ministry projects as well as the administrative support necessary to the success of those projects.
