General Baptist Ministries, based in Poplar Bluff, Missouri,
exists to unite the efforts of various local General Baptist churches and
regional associations. Policies are set
and initiatives are approved by regional representatives to the Council of
Associations. The Leadership Team of
General Baptist Ministries then develops plans and programs to carry forward
those policies and initiatives from the Council.
This unified effort allows human, spiritual, and financial
resources to be pooled with the result that we are able to do together what
otherwise would never be done alone.
General Baptist Ministries exists to extend the ministry of
local General Baptist churches and to assist them in winning people to Christ
at home and abroad while helping to develop believers to their highest
potential in Christian service. We will
maximize Kingdom impact by starting, equipping and inspiring local churches to
accomplish the Great Commission.
Housed in Poplar Bluff, Missouri, our ministry center
provides a base of operations for missions, church resourcing and
communications. Because of our
collective work missionary outreach to the world is coordinated in Mexico,
Honduras, Guatemala, Jamaica, The Marianas Islands, India, Niger, and The
Philippines as well as through other partnerships with organizations in many
other parts of the world.
State-side our national missions department coordinates
church plants and ethnic ministries in a number of states.
Church resourcing comes from conferences and events, local
and regional training, coaching networks and consultation services.
Print communication comes from the General Baptist Messenger
as well as through various promotional pieces.
Digital communication occurs through social media outlets, a weekly
blog, various websites that are maintained and a weekly e-mail news release.
